No it's not part of the drought that hit Texas over the summer, it's actually the start of construction for the Health Science Center overpass.
Last week crews started clearing land for the HSC overpass which will be similar to the overpass at Villa Maria.

The total estimated cost of the overpass is $9.7 million.
