The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].
Every time there’s a lot of rain there is a ton of flooding on Martin Luther King Drive just off Pine Street. The flooding can last well past the entire Lakewood is dry – it’s still flooded now at 1:00pm from the rain last night. As you know, this is a terrible intersection as it is, and the flooding makes it so much worse (and also risks damaging cars). It’s also impossible for pedestrians to walk past that area. The road slopes there, so it it probably needs proper drainage to be installed or a repair of the road itself. Can you please address this?
Response from Mayor Coles:
I forwarded your email to our engineering department and asked them to have our inspectors check out the area and come up with a plan to alleviate any flooding.
