Why has the roadbed become unstable?

Over time, a pipe that carries a stream under the road fill has become clogged with sediment and debris. As a result, water pools against the fill during storms. Over time, the fill has become so saturated with water that it cannot bear any weight, much like a watery mud that squishes out when you press against it.
