So? How is that your problem?

They are demolishing one of the oldest marine causeways in Europe for building a lesser pedestrian bridge that ends in a mound that FLOODS 6-10 times a year. Talk of going backwards there...

Suburbanist, why do you need a road to Mont Saint-Michel?

Silly: in the same way the fact that there's not a freeway through the Spui is a problem. Seriously, what was God, or Mother Nature, or Who- or Whatever thinking, putting tides in the way of full, unfettered vehicular access to Mont Saint-Michel (and then making it so steep)?

Aren't they frequent? Mont Saint-Michel seems a bit small to me for all those cars (although I haven't been there).

There used to be a parking area on the causeway just outside Mont Saint-Michel. Now it's a couple of kilometers inland, and you need a shuttle bus to reach it.

The last 2 -3 kilometers on the causeway was some of the most outstanding drives in France. Real one-of-a-kind. Too bad it ain't possible anymore.

Are there other roads (in Europe, in the world,...) that are regularily submerged with high tide (occasional floods doesn't count)?

Street View in Slovenia is not something unheard of, click here

Here you can see people walking in the street of Nova Gorica
