4 VotesFix it! Voted!14 Yorktown Road Newport News, VirginiaThe potholes are very bad at the corner of Warwick and Yorktown Road. In addition, multiple requests to sweep the debris off the road have been put into the city, but the same black hair tie has been there for over a year, which means that the street can't have been swept.

People have been using Covina Street as an abandoned vehicle lot for at least 18 months. This blocks the line of sight of people exiting the condominiums and has caused many near accidents.
Multiple residents have complained, but the police never come out and do anything. An old blue F-100 hasn't moved at all since 2013, which is so long that there is mud settled and caked around the tires. A white trailer has been there for nearly the same amount of time, but when a resident complains to the police, it will disappear for 2 days and then come back for months. When can a private citizen tow an abandoned vhicle? I would think 2 years would be enough time?

77 Main Street aka Main Street and Hurley Ave, 23601, electrical panel is missing from the base of street light. Someone sliced the insulation parallel to the white wire not cutting through the copper but making bare a section of wire. The wire is hot aka carrying power and the street light works.
This needs to be repaired before someone touches it. Or it rains heavily and shorts it out, which is most likely what some low life wants to darken the street for a little car break in.
If this isn't a city problem, please report it to whoever aka Virginia Power?

It seems to weed out bogus replies like that Hampton Landscaper troll, Internet Lizard,
who blames everything on Hampton's Landscaping Department cut backs, posting irrelevant replies to Newport News post.

There seems to be a few individuals who think this is day long free private parking when it is clearly marked 2 hours. Given how few spaces, this is problematic for people that need to visit the businesses and just need short term parking. Also it is a problem for small deliveries to businesses.

The foot bridge at South Ave and Craig Ave that goes into Huntington Park could use some maintenance. I can't remember it being repainted and it is in need of some rust removal and some paint.
The pathway leading to it has been repaired and repaved a couple of times but the bridge has been ignored.
Being steel and wood near salt water the environment is taking a toll. This is a nice short cut and addition for the park, for the bordering neighborhoods that run along the river as it is a pleasant walk or bike ride. I and others use it often.
