There are less than two weeks left in February and spring will be here before you know it. When spring arrives in Western New York, there are a few things you think about: cleaning up, melting snow, the return of outdoor activities and, yes, fixing potholes.
It’s become a running joke in western New York. The countless potholes that litter the roads from the city of Buffalo to the suburbs. I’ve seen very bad ones in Niagara Falls, as well as in Hamburg and Angola.
The city of Buffalo had a giant, deep pothole next to the Allpro lot near the Rand building, where I work, and the people who work there know where it is and still have to avoid it every day.
We should start seeing crews patching potholes in the next few weeks, and two cities have a head start on that.
According to the Erie County Department of Public Works, tweeted Wednesday, crews are on the way to fix potholes in the towns of Elma and Marilla.
Elma has really bad potholes if I remember correctly. These old country roads are usually beaten in the winter, especially those towns east and south of Buffalo, which receive more snowfall than the city and northern areas.
We had a brutally cold and snowy winter, so we should see a lot of potholes being fixed in March and April.
Be on the lookout for crews that repair these road hazards.
