Eagle St. was not repaved with the rest of the neighborhood, and it desperately needs it
I think the street should remain potholed. At least that way people won't speed through and kill themselves.
In fact no streets in New Haven should be repaved until our city engineers learn how to design them so they are safe. Repaving Whitney Avenue was a big mistake and no doubt will directly lead to many deaths and injuries. The potholed street was fine, the repaved one will be a death trap.
Please look at what other cities are doing with their streets, and don't pave ours until you learn something about how to design streets (with curves, bumped out sidewalks, etc.) that have appropriate speeds.
I'm guessing you do not live on or near Eagle St., Samantha. Good luck trying to get to a speed greater than 30 mph in a 50 yard distance! A major artery (Whitney) vs a street for neighborhood access (Eagle) aren't in the same category. Both ends of the street are flanked by stop signs and one is terminal (thanks to a do not enter/one way sign). You need to take up your cause with a different official. In the interim, we need a repaved street.
If you lived here, you would see how the potholes extend the entire length and width of the small thoroughfare. Water collects making them a chain of great lakes that last days after storms. In winter, the whole street is a skating rink. Residents park their cars in potholes.
City officials, please consider this street for repair. Perhaps some stimulus money could be used before winter???
