The entire stretch of West Woods Road from Whitney Avenue to Downs Road (border with Bethany) could use major repair. In some areas the entire road needs to be repaved, and has not been done in years. Previous attempts were merely quick patches, which eventually turn to bigger potholes. This road is used by trucks and cars alike as a major shortcut between northern Hamden / Cheshire to Westville area of New Haven and Merritt Pkwy southbound from Westville.
The section of W Woods Rd from Shepard Avenue to Downs is especially bad in numerous spots.
