Just past Valley View Rd and before Mohawk St on the Parkway there is a massive ice built up. There is a natural spring that always trickles near this location. I live near there and I have called mvwa and city of utica and each tell me to call the other ones since it's not there problem. This situation has been going on for several years with no solution. It's a hazard to the Parkway and cross streets. A serious issue. This morning the upd have it fenced off. Must of been an accident there and the upd are there too. A bad situation that has been ignored.

They , city of utica and mvwa, blame each other for the problem. Neither will fix it till a lawsuit and someone gets killed. This area stinks.

Gee that ice has you upset.

Have you thought about getting a over sized blaze orange hunters outfit and stopping before the ice, then get out and push your car across it so your safe ?

You can add flashing bike lights, a tape of a fog horn, ice skates.

Wave your hands frantically after crossing.

Get a bumper sticker that reads, Parkway ice, our lives have ended.

You can also stop, put chains on, then remove after the ice.

Get a tow across the ice.

Pay a girl scout to wave a caution flag while you cross.

you obviously dont live in utica or drive in that area or pay utica taxes so it's easy for you to be flippant. The water and ice on the parkway has been a frustrating issue for as long as I can remember. They "fixed" the problem after hiring engineers to rebuild the retaining wall years ago. The river and "parkway falls" have been raging bigger since then. Very frustrating as a tax payer.

UPD has road blocks up with no warning of single lane ahead and you can't even see the road blocks at night. Accident waiting to happen. Stupid UPD as usual.

Get new tires. Drive slowly. Simple.
