Flooding closes some NM roads

NM flooding

SANTA ROSA, N.M. (KRQE) – All that rain has left some serious flooding around New Mexico and even shut down roads.

State Road 156 near Santa Rosa is completely covered with water in some areas and the asphalt is ripped off in others.

The water was so powerful it even pulled a culvert loose. DOT has closed this road until they can get all that water out and make repairs.

It’s the same story for US Highway 84 mile marker 0 to 18. At this point there is no timeline for when it will be finished.
