Tell Us Where The Potholes Are in Garden City

This weird pattern of winter weather could wreak havoc on local roads.
This weird pattern of winter weather could wreak havoc on local roads.
Although winter is far from over, this freeze/thaw/freeze cycle of winter weather could begin wreaking havoc on local roads. And you know what that means for drivers - potholes.

According to Marc Herbst, executive director of the Long Island Contractors’ Association, "ruinous thaw and freeze allows for a constant runoff of water into the smallest cracks in the street only to have it expand when the temperature drops below freezing."

“It is Mother Nature’s version of a jack hammer and we have many weeks to go before this cycle comes to an end,” he said.

To report a pothole, residents can call the Village Yard directly at 465-4031 or the Department of Public Works at 465-4003.

Stratford Ave. from Tanners Pond Rd. to Nassau Blvd. is in poor road ability shape. There are too many potholes. And as this is an area of the Stratford Ave. school, I feel that the number of potholes and road defects can be a hazard especially in the school area.
