The state Department of Transportation is engaged in a major upgrade designed to end the flooding that routinely blocks New York Avenue in Halesite.
The $18 million state drainage and roadway project will continue until next summer. Two roundabouts are being constructed at Creek Road and Mill Dam Road. And drainage treatment/filtration basin is being constructed between those two roads. The DOT said the drainage work should mean the end of the flooding of the road after relatively minor amounts of rain.
But some doubt that the project will work and say they expect flooding will continue. What do you think? Please vote in the poll and tell us why in the comments.
