Recurring pooling Massachusetts’ I-93 risks hydroplaning
NBC Boston - 04/24/2017
Dr. Daniel Dulaski, a civil engineer and professor at Northeastern University who specializes in transportation design and safety, said one of the top jobs of engineers designing a road is to move water.
“As we design a roadway we’re trying to get that water out of the travel lane as quickly as possible,” he said.
Though he didn’t inspect the area himself, Dulaski said a clogged drain on the side of the road would be the first place to check.
“When you think about catch basins, in the fall, especially in New England, you might have twigs or leaves that clog the catch basins,” he said.
