Potholes: Where are They?

The first day of spring means it's pothole season -- post here to let Public Works know where the worst are in your neighborhood.

 

Despite the fact that we had a virtually snow-free winter, the town's streets have still taken a beating over the winter and with spring comes pothole season.

Potholes appear when the pavement cracks, moisture builds up in the crack and then freezes and thaws. It's a problem that the town really can't avoid.

Potholes can be a year-long problem but are especially noticable in the spring after streets are plowed and sanded over the winter. While the areas for the most part escaped severe winter weather, there still are sections of roads that look like they've been chewed up and are in need of repair.

Do you have bad potholes in your neighborhood? Post the locations here and if you can, snap a picture and upload it here too (but be safe while taking pictures!). Public Works can't fix what they aren't aware of, so a running list of potholes can help them locate problem spots.

And Happy Spring!

ALL of Orchard Rd. is a pothole, as well as Reservoir Rd.! Why do they continue to throw asphalt down which does not last and ruins our cars, leaving residue on our cars which is impossible to remove!
