Hydroperiod of asphalt

It's not often that a road has a hydroperiod.

Let alone a paved one.

Water seen on Loop Road
about 4 miles from 40 Mile Bend
looking West (in December 2017)

Thanks to this summer's bountiful rains:

Water overtopped Loop Road (east of Pinecrest) for over 5 months.

Duration (in months per year) that Loop Road
east of Pinecrest overtops, 1990-present

That sets a new "all time" record for the swamp (i.e. road)!
