With warmer weather approaching, cities and towns across the United States are starting the process of patching potholes. The Saratogian, for example, recently looked into resident complaints about potholes and other issues on Jefferson Street in Saratoga Springs, NY.
According to the newspaper, the street has been seeing a lot of activity on SeeClickFix. Reported 12 days ago by Julia, an issue entitled "Major Potholes!" mentioned that there were four or five major potholes between Crescent Street and Crescent Avenue:
Tons of people drive the road daily to go to the Racino. I hit one at least every time I leave my house (no choice with snow/traffic)! This should definitely be fixed as soon as possible...I'm afraid of getting a flat every time I hit one. They're huge!Another user, Jules, agreed about the driving conditions and thinks it should be one of the town's top priorities.
It's not even "bad." It's downright awful.The Saratogian recently spoke with Anthony Scirocco, the city's Public Works Commissioner. Scirocco said that they were currently working on their paving schedule and Jefferson Street was being considered. He added that city repairs would depend on state funding. He also mentioned that crews started repairing potholes on nearby Crescent Street.
They’re going to continue to work in that area up there.Like other media outlets, the Saratogian continues to shed light on community issues that need to be addressed and we want to thank them. Know of more potholes on Jefferson Street? Report them on SeeClickFix!
