from the talk of west hartford blog

we have the west hartford pot hole users guide

(please note: we've reported a burned out street light to the town over the YEARS, yes, that's right, i said YEARS. and it is STILL NOT RE-BULBED. we are told, each time we call, 'they will get to it')

soooooooooooooo, i wouldn't hold my breath waiting on the repair of the pot holes

As a public service, portions of a Pot Hole FAQ have been reprinted (with additions) for those traversing the streets of West Hartford:

What makes a pothole?
Potholes are created when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and then thaws. This weakens the pavement. Traffic loosens it even more, and it eventually the pavement crumbles and pops out.

Some people will be blaming new de-icing materials that were used this past winter on our roadways. Who knows, it might even be all those heavy West Hartford SUV's and the increased traffic flow that was not meant for our roadways................
