2019 for the corresponding to the typhoon No. 15 and Typhoon No. 19 disaster

Cases of abnormal rainfall

From September to October 2019, a typhoon No. 15 landed and other disasters occurred due to three storms and abnormal rain, and the road was closed extensively (typhoon No. 19: approximately 2,200 km, etc.). We rushed the restoration work while announcing the advance publicity and release prospects in advance, and with the exception of some of them, we closed the roads by the next day.

We implemented “alternative road (free) measures” on Banetsu Expressway (Ono IC – Koriyama East IC) parallel to National Route 49, which was closed due to bridge subsidence and landslides caused by Typhoon # 19.

In addition, Mito City and other areas that were flooded by Typhoon No. 19 and cleaned up national roads where sediment was deposited helped to restore affected areas.
