Got potholes? Report them to the city

December 31st, 2010 · 1 Comment

In the spring, Seattle’s rain encourages blooms and beauty, but in the winter that wetness brings on the season of potholes. Is it our imagination, or are the hazardous holes particularly prolific this year?

Or maybe the snowplows scraped some up?

Maple Leaf Life readers have groused about two potholes. One reported: “Giant pothole that first appeared in winter and was patched is back on 1st Ave, just north of Northgate Way. The pothole is in the southbound lane.”

And Brian wrote: “Eastbound on Northgate Way, between Hwy 99 and I-5, there are several deep potholes in the right lane.”

We welcome other pothole reports to close out 2010. If you see a pothole, be sure to report it to the city as well, either online or by phone (684-ROAD). The “Pothole Rangers” should be out to fix it soon, but keep in mind they’re very busy, as KING-5 reported a couple of weeks ago.
