It's About Time for Brookfield to Open North Ave.

A few days ago, the City of Brookfield closed North Avenue between Barker Road and Derrin Lane (meaning Brookfield Road for through-bound traffic.)

Made sense at the time; the road was under about 12" of water at the Fox River bridge; some morons would blow through the water hazard and drown their engines in the process, making a REAL mess out of an inconvenience.

But the Curious Blogger decided to take a look today, and discovered that one can see the road-stripes for the entire distance that the road is underwater.

Meaning that the water-depth is roughly 2"-4" or so--meaning that sensible drivers can go through without concern.

So OPEN THE ROAD, already!
