Thunderstorms created intense flash floods throughought Denton County

Cars cross the intersection of Carroll Boulevard and Eagle Drive through flooding in June 2017.

Major drainage improvements needed on Eagle Drive require crews to close the road between Elm Street and Carroll Boulevard beginning next week. 

Work on the underground drainage system is scheduled to begin Monday and be finished, weather permitting, at the end of May.  

Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes as ongoing traffic delays are expected.

The new drainage system is designed to handle a 100-year storm and will help reduce persistent flooding in the area.
