Midway Crossing – video (otw)

The road I live on needs to be renamed.

Watch the video and let me know what you think.

Many of the households dont have to cross this part – sadly I do.

    You ever see “A river runs through it”? Robert Redford would be proud.

    I grew up on a dirt road and when rains came part of it would be flooded from the creek. Being 16 or so I thought I would drive through it without checking it…cut the side of my new tires and I almost got swept to the deep end…in a 1966 Mustang.
    The road eventually eroded away and the city had to fix it…many times until they paved it.
    I live near a River Road…perfect name.

      That’s what I was thinking as well.

    Dangerous for driving and destructive for cars. Definitely need a high-sided vehicle. The water requires to be drained or utilised somehow.

      It is draining, only from the highside to the low side.
      Luckily – Its not always like this

        A result of rainfall. I have experienced this once driving in a storm I could not see the road and hit a large pool of fast flowing water which my small car could only just manage to go through, a shock and scary.

          Well, in retrospect, most people on my end of the road have big – four-wheel drive type vehicles.
          *** I did throw my rubber boots on and walk through the water to test the current and depth before driving through. It is about 6 inches right now (and fast) but not impossible to traverse. ***
          The water flow will surely be less tomorrow morning. Sadly, it IS washing the road away underneath (dirt roads – yanno?)
          This has happened from time to time in the past 20+ years. It’s sad that the problem still has NOT been fixed properly.

            The six-inch depth I talked about is only the part I walked and drove through. To the left of that, it gets quite a bit deeper.
            Yeah – I was told to stay to the right

            I thought you would have a large four-wheel drive. My car was a little sports car very low. I think 20 years is rather slow in fixing a major problem like this.

              My wife has a Dodge Durango, its what I’ve needed to drive the past couple days back and forth to work. It isn’t a four-wheel drive, but it does sit up higher than my Chevy van.
              Still, I don’t want to make this a habit.
