As we are all too aware, potholes are the signs and leftovers of a heavy snowfall that included a lot of freezing and thawing over the past winter months.
The road in front of my house is one of these heavily damaged areas as was the issue with the entire strip of Sandy Creek Drive. Our road is the back road to the Eastside Industrial Park on the east end of Seymour, and the traffic burden is heavy.
Over a recent weekend, as we worked outside, the pothole in the front of our house was proving to be an obstacle that had become too big to avoid. The drivers of this road have a telephone pole on one side, a mailbox on the other, a pothole that was approximately 12 to 15 inches deep in the middle of the road and oncoming traffic. Over the weekend, you could witness cars braking hard, squealing tires and making drastic swerves to avoid a collision in this area.
