Description

This is easily the worst set of potholes in the New Haven. Run off from the hill crosses over the street, and constantly eats away the street. The problem is magnified in the winter time, when the run off freeze and creates an ice pot hole combo. The city put temporary patches to the holes, but they are eroded away in a single week! The city also put up marker cones as a warning, but its still not enough. There needs to be a permanent fix, like maybe an underground pipe to funnel the run off water under the road. You can easily see the carnage that these pot holes create. The guardrails are bent from constant crashes. The nearby trees are also scarred from being hit by cars that lost control from the holes. The damage from the run off water is so bad and so obvious that I nicknamed the area "Springside River". Its literally a river of water embedded into the street, that's how terrible it is.
