Potholes: Where in Hamden Are They?

Today is the first day of spring, which 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!

You want to talk about the worst president (though why you are even talking about it on a story about potholes is beyond me ) then you HAVE to be talking about George W. Bush, who single-handedly RUINED this country after 9/11 by convincing people that Hussain was involved in order to justify invading Iraq so he could get the man who threatened his daddy. THOUSANDS of young Americans died just so Bush could get his revenge. And the real war in Afghanistan was put on the back burner while Bush played tough guy. It took Obama to get the real villian -- Bin Laden. They should use the new George W. Bush White House portrait as a target. Between Romney and Obama -- neither are much of a bargain. We need another Harry S Truman.

Marty, I agree with 90% of your comment, except our President is cleaning up after a huge mess left by the dry drunk. He is doing a very good job considering.

Getting back on point here ... Wintergreen Ave is quite the obstacle course with potholes. Ok. Back to the haters

YOU MUST HAVE A POSITION WITH THE TOWN AND HAD YOUR STREET PAVED

West Todd st is like Beirut. I call Public Works every week and they patch a couple of the smaller ones, but miss at least half every time they come out. Todd St is just as bad.
