You’re Not Imagining: Potholes Worst in Years

Budget cutbacks in annual road paving coupled with “a real bad freeze-thaw cycle” have produced Westport’s worst run of potholes in years, Public Works Director Steve Edwards told the Board of Selectmen today. Image

Calling potholes “a seasonal rite of passage,” Edwards said his department has been hard pressed to keep up this winter as the weather has wreaked havoc on the town’s paved surfaces.

“Unfortunately, as we all know, we had a couple of years there where we cut back a little bit, and I would say right now tied into the fact that we got a real bad freeze-thaw cycle this winter, I’ve got more potholes than I’ve had in most recent years,” he said.

Edwards provided the update on potholes at the request of First Selectman Jim Marpe who said he had received numerous complaints.
