To the editor,

Once again Park Street is flooded and closed and as usual, no one seems to have any solution to the problem.

One thing I do not think I have ever seen suggested in the 38 years that I have lived in the area is to build a land bridge from the bridge to the railway tracks which would allow flood water to flow through while raising the road above the offending water and ice. Granted there might be the few occasions where the flooding would affect the area at the intersection of Park and Marshland Drive, but that seldom happens, whereas as we have seen the remainder of Park Street has been closed twice within a week.

    Is it that this solution is too simple for the powers to be to consider? Maybe it would not cost enough millions for governments to consider such an inexpensive solution? Get with it people! The solution is simple.
