Description

This is a problem any time there's ice/snow melt and heavy rain. Water flows from driveways on the South side right over the heavily canted Barry Ave. At times so much water flows (like today) that you can see ripples. I shouldn't have to explain why this is bad but I will anyway. Driver who don't maintain their tires can experience aqua-planing, in late fall and early spring this day time water can freeze at night etc. etc.

Not coincidentally this was the same location where snow from the Southern driveway was shoved onto Barry, causing several feet of the West bound lane to be blocked.

- why did the plowing service think this was OK to do?
- why did the owners of the driveway not call them back to fix this?
- why did RFPD not contact the owners?

Small wonder no one got hurt there.

Location is approximate, I think the mailbox says 62 Barry. Anyone driving there will immediately know what I'm talking about.

Please fix drainage of Barry Ave in this location!
