Be Careful of Mud On Terry Hershey - Houston

The recent releases from the reservoirs have put dirt/mud on the low points of Terry Hershey from Dairy Ashford to Beltway 8 and it can be very slick.

I got complacent eastbound just short of the Beltway. I was going down the hill from the sewage plant and found wet mud on the trail at the curve. I just barely kept it upright with very slight braking staying straight and then running off of the trail which fortunately was fairly open. I was just lucky.

With this weather, the mud isn't going to clear very quickly.

Be careful out there.

Ah yes, I do recall the left behind mud from last few times as well. What s mess. It is indeed slick. Glad you didn’t bite it!
Our dog fell down the stairs last week so I haven’t ridden to work in as long so I’ve missed all the recent weather related trail fun until they send someone out to clear it all.

If it hasn't started already, Terry Hershey Park is in for quite a change.

It only affects the south bank from Eldridge to DA so 97% or people won’t be affected. Only people who ride the Anthills trail. I think it’s a worthless project because it won’t help retain hardly any water but apparently for some bureaucratic BS they have to do this before any drainage fixes can happen in the neighborhoods because the water isn’t supposed to flow directly into the bayou —even though that’s how all the neighborhoods drain, so, wtf ever.
I appreciate them saying they will preserve trees and reforest but I’ll believe it when I see it. Once finished, I’m sure the trailblazers will make a nice cut through to connect the Anthills again.
Worst part is this was apparently in the works a long time ago but since HCFCD did a survey last year and the majority of people said flood control was their priority (duh?) this is the solution - which like I said will hold almost no worthwhile amounts of water or overflow.
