A massive pothole on one Ohio Valley roadway has gotten so bad that people swerve to avoid it everyday and say its endangering their family, friends, and neighbors.
Residents who travel up and down Route 88 in Marshall County are getting fed up with what they calling a lack of progress when it comes to the repair.
The pothole in front of the Samuel’s Estates neighborhood was first noticed more than a year ago but just as recently as Friday night it has gotten a lot worse after two cars hit the hole and bent their rims.
One of those vehicles was driven by Renee Hart’s daughter. Hart says the cars can be fixed but is worried about the permanent damage the pothole could inflict on the drivers and their passengers.
“Being that is on a blind hump, if they don’t fix it some one is going to get bad hurt,” said Hart. “They’re either going to have a fatality or a bad wreck here and it needs fixed. They’ve been asked to fix it several times by different people.They say its not a priority and it needs to be a priority.”
We are working to get in touch with the State to find out if and or when they’re planning to fix this potentially dangerous pothole along Route 88. Look for continuing coverage on 7 News.
