It may have been a mild winter, but the roads around Lynbrook and East Rockaway still need fixing.
Patch is on a quest to uncover the roadways and intersections with the worst potholes. So sound off in the comments section and sound the alarm. Your car – and that minivan full of kids on the way to little league practice – will thank you.
There were 115 potholes reported to the Town of Hempstead Highway Department in early 2011, compared with 127 in 2010. However from Jan. 1 through the end of March this year, there have been 336 pothole inquiries.
"Please note that we count inquiries, not potholes -- there may be more than one pothole at a given location," a highway department representative stated.
Potholes should be reported directly to the Highway Department at (516) 489-5000 or e-mailed to email@example.com. Residents should provide the exact street address and the nearest cross street.
Potholes on major county roads around Lynbrook, such as Merrick Road, can be reported to the Nassau County Department of Public Works. To do so, either call (516) 571-6900 or send a specific location to firstname.lastname@example.org.
