Crabtree Creek Floods The Middle Creek Greenway

     After Tropical Storm Hannah came through on Saturday, September 6, 2008, Crabtree Creek flooded the intersection of Hodges Road and Atlantic Avenue and also several sections of the Middle Creek portion of the Raleigh greenway.


above is the greenway underpass below Atlantic Ave.  Below is the same view 9/6/08.

This is the first time the greenway has flooded since October 2007 by my count.

  1. Hey John. Am enjoying a few pix and notes from Raleigh. I am in the Netherlands now for an extended period. It’s been quite a change, but I get to bike to work, 10 minutes! and it’s safe. I’m in a town called Arnhem, which actually has some serious hills due to glacial deposits long ago.
