Flooded Stratford Roads Causing Problems for Drivers

At least one motorist has reportedly gotten stuck in the high waters.

Local flooding this afternoon is causing some motorists who venture into high waters to get stuck in those waters.

The Stratford Fire Department was called around 1:15 p.m. Wednesday to assist a motorist on Main Street near Sikorsky Airport that drove into a flooded roadway and could not get out, according to a Twitter post from @STFD911ALERT.

The photo to the right is of flooding on Surf Ave. It was posted on the fire department's Facebook page at about 12:45 p.m.

"Some roadways in town are flooded," the caption to the photo reads. "Please do not attempt to drive or walk through standing water. The depth of the water can be deceiving and manhole covers may become dislodged or displaced entirely."

One resident to comment on the photo said the section of West Broad Street at Cumberland Farms was also flooded.

I agree wsith Stick Lee. A waste of money that Stratford tax payers do not have.

Donate your tires to Windsor Ave. Poor road work by Burns Construction, digging up road in December/January to replace gas lines. Road is sinking in several inches from their "dig".
