Large pothole on Galloway Road a threat to drivers

A Sheriff's deputy is asking dispatch for assistance with a very large, deep pothole in front of 2725 Galloway Road. It is in the westbound lane east of Macomber Road.

"It's very deep and will need some attention tonight," the deputy says.

The deputy tried to fill it in with some stone from the road but it was not enough.

This sounds familiar. Wasn't there a problem before with this that the police were called out for? During a snow storm I think. Sounds like it's time to take care of it. We're having a little sting of nice weather. Hope they can get to it. Possibly dangerous.

Either that or get a building permit and put a parking garage in the pothole and use the roof to stabilize and repair the surface....

Folklore has it that the famous road builders of the Roman Empire, more than 3,000 years ago, were hampered by potters who dug up chunks of clay from the smooth highways of that time. The clay became pots, and hence the name. But that doesn’t entirely make sense, since Roman roads were made of a combination of stones, lime, course sand and sometimes metal.

There is also an explanation in that in the vast dessert and mountain regions of the American West, natural holes in the clay formations in mountains were eroded in the shape of kettles (Large Pots)

Take your pick
