“Danger zone.” “Sinking area.” “The Widowmaker.”
For the past month or so, we’ve been asking you, our lovely audience, to map the worst potholes across the state. We’ve partnered with SeeClickFix to help us track the potholes and alert the officials in charge of fixing them.
So far people have reported 125 issues with potholes in the metro and three of them have been resolved. The three most nefarious stretches of road (based on the number of people who want to see them fixed) are:
1) 28th Avenue between 38th and 50th Streets, Minneapolis: “I no longer drive on it – the road is too narrow to avoid the potholes, and the potholes are deep enough to do a lot of damage.”
2) Washington Avenue North, Minneapolis: “Washington Ave is littered with potholes. Cars swerving to miss them are creating near accidents.”
3) 46th and Hiawatha, Minneapolis: “I could probably bottom out a school bus on some of the holes in this stretch. And it’s almost the only way to get to several of these businesses.”
Check out the map below and vote for the potholes that you’d like to see fixed or add your own.
