  1. Someday, they might just build a bridge high enough to clear most of the flooding in that stream valley. Not that i'll hold my breath for that to happen.

  4. I used to live in Reston. That particular bridge and road were always too low. They seriously need to build a new bridge there and replace the road deck so that this will not happen again, thereby inconveniencing the commuters and residents who depend on that road.

  5. Flood before this got a new bridge there, which did survive this time, but was not high enough at all.
