5162 Ridgetop Drive Waterford Township, Michigan
Several large potholes exist at this intersection. One pothole, in particular, is very deep. So much so, that cars are forced to drive out of the lane to avoid damage to their vehicles. The safety issue is that an accident can easily occur. Bicyclists are also at risk. The Sidewalk/Bile path crosses right thru this area, too. The last time this large pothole was "patched" the crew just tossed "cold patch" into the hole...the cold patch was dumped on top of existing sand, dirt, and rubble. If the pothole had been cleaned out, perhaps with a strong jet of compressed air, like I see used by crews working on cement roads, I'm sure the patch job would have held up longer. If the crew had done a better job in the first place this situation might have lasted longer. It costs less to do the job right. I am respectfully requesting that these potholes be repaired on behalf of a. 74 homes in our subdivision. PS, Ridge Top Drive is right in front of the Waterford Twp Service Garage on Tubbs Rd. We have failing pothole repairs at the north end of a Ridgetop at Tubbsv, too.
