Description

Whenever it rains, a puddle forms in the roadway on Elm Street at the the southwest corner with High Street (right in the crosswalk). I believe the puddle results from a depression in the roadway that prevents the water from draining into the nearby storm drains. The puddle is large and right near where people must stand while waiting to cross the street. When drivers (especially buses, who have little room to maneuver) drive right through the puddle, they send up a wall of mucky water that splashes all over pedestrians.

DPW, as soon as the weather dries out, could you please layer on a few more inches of asphalt here to prevent this puddle from developing in the future? Thanks!
