This is an interesting subject for riverside communities, especially given climate change and the related increase in the number of extreme weather events.
Years ago, an elderly resident told me that when he was a boy, it was not uncommon for spring floods to cover Clearview Avenue. Dams upstream now control the spring water levels pretty well. Since I’ve lived here, I’ve seen the water rise high enough a few times to completely submerge the benches by the bike path, but it hasn’t ever crept to this side of the Parkway underpasses.
