This water main repair stopped in August 2016 with a very sloppy asphalt patch.just after the crumbling road had been resurfaced

About 18 to 20 months, or so, later, a crew returned and worked on the surface, but did not finish the job again. The current surface is more than an inch below grade with sharp (tire damaging..) squared off edges which allows it to hold a pool of water. One automobile accident (that I know of..) has occurred after it lost control when striking that space.

If this is not fixed before freezing weather arrives there will no doubt be more accidents as cars loose control when encountering a snow covered ice skating rink where "3 street corners" intersect..

Completion of repairs to this surface has been basically ignored for more than 2 years and 3 months after it was started... This is unacceptable, dangerous and an affront to the neighborhoods residents and guests who have to try and dodge that space.

Please Help!
