image for Las Cruces Extends Madrid Street Through Flood Plain and Earthen Dam
This shouldn't happen again for 96 more years! Your city guarantees it>

Las Cruces, New Mexico has announced that the extended Madrid street will open next week. Madrid was extended from Fairbanks avenue, through a now demolished earthen dam, and across a flood plain. It will now connect with Triviz street and the city hopes that this will ease traffic and congestion in the area.

When asked why the city would extend a street in such a manner, a member of the city planning board (Roberto Chupacabra) said "Well, yes, we're getting a lot of grief for tearing down an earthen dam and opening up a flood plain area. People have to realize, though, that this was built as a 100 year flood area."

"We had our 100 year flood about four years ago. That means that we won't need to build that dam back up again until 2106 and that houses below the dam will be safe until then."

"We've got it on our calendars and will make sure that future generations take care of this when it is time for the next 100 year flood. Your city is watching out for and taking care of you!"
