Flooding notifications from BPD, TxDOT

Both the Beaumont Police Department and the Texas Department of Transportation have issued statements regarding flooding in Southeast Texas.

PRESS RELEASE
BPD's Sgt. Rob Flores, Jr.


Heavy rains are causing flooding in low areas throughout the city.  Many roadways are not passable due to standing water.

Specifically, all highway  and interstate service roads along Eastex Freeway and Interstate 10 are underwater and many areas are not passable.

Many intersections along Dowlen Rd., Delaware Street, Washington Blvd., College St.,  Magnolia St., and Lucas Street are flooded.

Drivers are urged to avoid driving, if possible, as this system moves through our area.  Do not enter underpasses as you will become stranded by the standing water.
