The ongoing flooding problem at intersection of Middle and University

Original post made by whatever on Apr 2, 2014

For many years now whenever there is a moderate or heavier rainfall the northwest corner of Middle and University has had a major flooding problem due to substandard stormwater drainage.

Earlier this week that flooding was quite extensive covering the yard at the corner, the sidewalks on Middle and University and a substantial portion of the street, resulting in a major pedestrian and vehicle hazard.

After at least 30 years of flooding at the intersection perhaps it is time for the city to solve the problem.

I usually see a lot of foot and vehicle traffic at that location. The situation sounds really bad. I wonder if the city has been contacted about it.
