This stretch of road has been flooding with every major rain event over the last month or so. Extra pumps and 3-foot pipes were not enough to keep water off of the road.
The City of Maitland planned to step up their work on a drainage project that is down the street from here, installing 5-foot and 6-foot pipes in place. Officials say they also have heavy equipment ready to go and will dig out a path for the water if necessary.
But on Monday morning, there was no water flooding on the road, as pumps worked to keep water away from the low-lying area of 17-92.
The City of Council in Maitland is planning to take a vote on a purchase for the project. The city is hoping to improve the drainage system into Lake Gem, but they're need to spend $80,000 on more dirt for the project first.
