Those Pesky Potholes: Where Are Biggest Offenders?

It's the season for road crews to patch up holes in the asphalt. Post the location of your "favorite" one here to let Public Works identify the worst are in your neighborhood.

 

Despite the fact that we had a virtually snow-free winter, the city'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 really can't avoid.

Potholes can be a year-round 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 spit out — and are in need of repair.

Do you have bad potholes in your neighborhood or on your daily commute? Post the locations here and snap a picture and upload it here, too. Public Works staff can't fix potholes they aren't aware of, so a running list of potholes can help them locate problem spots.

Since we are speaking of bad roads...I just had to take this time to comment about High Street. OMG! PW, can you reverse that disaster! ..... please? High used to be such a beautiful street....now it's ugly and dangerous. I loath that spot (you all know where I'm talking about!)

When you call the Middletown/DPW, it seems like they're doing you a favor by taking down the location of the posthole or other road problem. Someone send them a smiley face.
