New lake along Salado Greenway?

11 Oct 2021

Not hardly. As no surprise, it's backed up floodwaters on Salado Creek that runs up to N.E. Entrance Road, a road that is next to the airfield of San Antonio International.

Storms rolled through San Antonio at around 2 p.m. At other times, it takes on the makings of a Texas cow pasture with a pond in the middle. N.E. Entrance is a road that parallels west of runway 22 and becomes Skyplace Blvd. It provides access to aviation-related businesses.

Due to the activities of Hurricane Pamela, more heavy showers can be expected for the San Antonio area. So one can expect to see this road, as well as other parts of the greenway trails, go underwater such as the case today with the trail under the Union Pacific trestle at Wetmore Road.

After the water subsides, mud, branches, and other debris can be expected.
