Description

Severe flooding in front of Hopkins School whenever there is heavy rain. This causes traffic problems: stalled out cars in the middle of the road, people driving on the wrong side of the road--and this is a very busy, curvy, dark street. It also causes damage to our driveway and ours and neighbors' garages when the water overflows the street and runs downhill alongside our house. Rte. 122/Forest is a state road; the state DOT needs to be involved. From previous complaints I've learned the drainpipe for the road is supposed to be insufficient. However, the three streetside drains at the base of Hopkins' driveway (2 on W, 1 on E of Forest)never drain well, even after cleaning, which is also contributes.
