Title: Grapevine Lake, TX: Guardrails Removed from Fairway Dr for Spillway Use
Post by: Brian556 on June 03, 2015, 11:28:42 PM
This is strange and baffling. It appears that they removed both the guardrails and the fence from Fairway Dr where it crosses the spillway, so that water would flow better. There's no way the water could have washed them away. That's a lot of work to have to remove and reinstall them. This was not mentioned in the article, and a lot of people probably did not notice it.
