Mercedes Residents Question Drainage System along Frontage Roads
MERCEDES – Residents in Mercedes want answers regarding the drainage system along the frontage roads.
Several say they were stuck in their homes and lost the majority of their belongings after heavy rain caused major flooding.
One resident we spoke with blames the flood damage on the way the expressway was constructed.
KRGV’s John Paul Barajas reached out to the Texas Department of Transportation to find out why the drainage system encountered problems.
A spokesman tells us they tried keeping the drains clear of debris in order to keep the water from overflowing.
