I've reported these potholes for years. If the southbound lane (coming from Townsend) is not available for northbounders (from Ft. Hale) then you have to drive right through them and I think I will begin submitting my bills for front end work to the city.
I understand the road will be problematic as the curb in that area is at the bottom of a hill and probably gets a lot of eroding run-off, but if you want to make it a dirt road, then make it a dirt road but please don't make all drivers ruin their cars when they can't see 8-inch deep holes at night or in the rain or both.
