Damaged storm drains and a street riddled with potholes and gravel were of high concern this week.
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
We start this week with a different kind of road problem. This is one that was off to the side on Oakdale Terrace and Marymount Drive in Huntsville. It's a storm drain.
One person commented on See, Click, Fix that the cover had been damaged and was down in the drain, causing a safety hazard for the neighborhood. There was yellow tape around the area for a while.
Huntsville Public Works took a look at it and got to work. They reset the storm drain cover and cemented it. And now, it's fixed.
The other situation's potholes, something we see and hear about a lot. The road we checked out was Sandia Boulevard in Huntsville. The driver, commenting on See, Click, Fix, reported several potholes with gravel. He said it's hazardous when two cars try to pass each other, and the potholes are causing a lot of wear and tear.
Huntsville's Public Works crew went out to take a look at it and decided it was a problem. So, workers patched what they could. And now, it's a little smoother.
