If the highways are placed in flood plains, the highways' physical assets experience little damage, but the road network operation can be totally or partially interrupted during and before the rain period, until the water level decreases and the roads can recover the trafficability. The traffic interruption degree depends upon if the water level over the roadway is higher or lower than the vehicle's wading capability and if the water speed is enough or not to destabilize or drag the vehicle.
