Though the railway bridge needs only ONE additional foot of clearance, the projects call for lowering East Avenue by THREE feet. This will necessitate all new drainage, and relocation of all of the utilities that are currently under the roadway.

Even as we are spending millions to RAISE the roadway elsewhere in the city to mitigate flood risks, these projects will cost millions more to LOWER the roadway.
