I-40 escapes serious flooding

We've kept an eye on local interstates during Thursday's heavy rains. At I-40 and Bell rain water has washed up fewer problems than in the past.

What's been a trouble spot in recent heavy rains, the underpass at I-40 and Bell, simply caused an afternoon slowdown for drivers. You'll remember just over a month ago heavy rains actually reached under the interstate and pushed up off the highway causing dangerous road conditions that crews had to repair right away.

The Texas Department of Transportation is now waiting on results from ground penetration radar... to make sure that problem does not happen again in the next strong rain fall.
