My drive in from Katy on Monday.
Actually HCTRA is at fault here. It is completely ridiculous that their roads flooded and for so long after the millions if not billions we have paid to "maintain" they highway, and thats before any "admin" fees if you accidentally forget to update your credit card info.

Its actually addicks reservoir thats messing everyone up the most. They pumped AND repaired BW8 in a matter of days while HWY 6 will be under water for a month at least. This is twice now in less than two years this has happened.

I think HWY 6 will be open in a week. I'm not sure why it took so long to empty last time, but according to the graphs I'm looking at, it's only a few feet away from "the low point of HWY 6" which is 96 feet, and right now Addicks water surface elevation is 99.62. To put this into perspective, we've been dropping about .75-1' per day. I guess it's the dry weather that's helping. Eldridge is at an even higher elevation (96.6) so it should be open even sooner. They are slowing down the flow now so west Houston can recover, but I'm sure they are eager to get those roads back up and running as well.
