Roanoke County road floods because of drainage issues

ROANOKE COUNTY, VA -

Bradshaw Road in Roanoke County saw flooding because of storm water drainage issues.

In some cases cars had difficult crossing the road, or the water was so high cars had to turn around.

Folks that live in the area say debris, sticks and stumps get caught in the culverts and ditches and it causes flooding the area.

Roanoke City also experiences flooding because of storm water drainage issues because of heavy rain. City council is looking into a potential three dollar fee to fix 70 million dollars worth of repairs to fix the problems. So far they have not voted on the fee.
