EL PASO - With the rain we've been having, many roads become slick and can even flood. But residents in east El Paso say nothing compares to the Montwood river.
One neighbor said he regularly puts sandbags around his property because the rain overflows into his yard.
Others say the flooding has been a problem whenever it rains for quite some time, and that they were promised something would be done it.
We asked district 7 representative Steve Ortega about the project, and in a written statement, he told us, "I believe the design is funded and should be complete next year. After the design is completed then funds will be programmed for reconstruction pursuant to the design."
