The bridge is under water. There is about two feet of water sitting on the bridge.
The sand from winter road treatment washes down hill and clogs up the storm drains. At this point, the drains are so clogged that they probably need to be completed dug up and redone. Real problem is that there was never ongoing maintenance to vacuum the sand and litter from the drains. Probably need to be done once a month or more during the winter.
I've never heard a schedule for repair, and I've also heard the problem has existed for several years.
It floods every time we have a bad rainstorm. It is a really big problem for us.
What would you estimate the ETA for the permits to be secured and work to begin on this project.
As you know, this has been an ongoing problem for years.
How about a redesign of the road?
I would argue that the problem is NOT that the road goes too low, but that the road doesn't go low enough. We already have a problem that the road floods with precipitation and that will be very difficult to solve. It wasn't a very good idea to build a road through a wetland. We've also seen that the maintenance to keep the drains clean apparently requires a permit, in addition to being too expensive for the city to afford.
Instead, let's make a road that at least self-drains when the precipitation STOPS falling. Take out the curb, take out the so-called culvert / bridge, and pave the dirt to a lower grade so the road IS the stream.
Well the problem is that the issue is complex, a little more than the city can handle. I so not think that making this road any lower is going to solve the problem, rather make it worse.
I will agree that it was not a good idea from a road in this location given the problems, however the city had to be aware this would happpen.
The real problem is that the city so finacially strapped, that they do not have many options.
I think that what needs to be done is to look at better drainage and probabaly a whole new design of the road.
It would be nice to see some action on this.
The Culvert has finally been cleaned out. Laydon Construction replace the sidewalks this week on both Hemmingway Street and Eastern Street on Monday 8/23 and Tuesday 8/24.
This issue was resolved by the city. Not state DOT that has bus stop why at the lowest point, not the Governor's office and not the Feds but our local government.
Now people need to stop using Hemmingway Creek as a dumping ground.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
