There is a chronic problem on our street. For the 40 years that we have lived on the street when it rains, it floods. During that time the road has been repaved three times, each time it raised the road two inches. In front of the house the road is at least 8 inches higher then the sidewalk. The road never floods, but we do. Since it is a state highway the government pays for the drainage program. The drains will be in our driveways. This state highway is a two lane road because the street is a historic road and can not be widened.
