Storm floods Stratford roads

Drivers attempting to pass through flooded roadways kept Stratford firefighters busy when heavy rains hit the area Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Firefighters were called to rescue drivers at the bottom of Exit 30, which was closed by State Police; on Main Street near Sikorsky Memorial Airport; and on Lordship Boulevard.

Heavy flooding was also being reported along the coastline in Milford.

Details will be posted as they become available.

    Years ago a CT DOT supervisor at the Garage a few hundred yards from
    the FLOOD SITE at the bottom of the I-95 exit/entrance # 30 told me that
    if Bridgeport fixed the Tide gates on both sides of the Airport, it would allow
    water from High Tides to get out.
    Instead existing situation causes ongoing problems.

    Further dry wells in the abutting cemetary or Interstate property could hold
    the flood waters & be pumped by FIRE DEPT, when more convenient.

    Further the DOT property has a deep trench for some of the flood water.

    Politicians cause or allow problems & costs to innocent vehicle owners,
    because they use these to cause problems they can use.
