Pedestrians on rainy and heavy snow-melt days have been at their peril along the stretch of Chestnut between Clifford and South Streets. Pooling water makes potholes invisible, and unwary – or sadistic – drivers plowing through them drenches passersby.
The pothole crew's efforts will end that menace, at least as long as the patches hold.
And, unfortunately, that's our only hope: this section of Chestnut Street does not appear on the Mayor's pavement schedule map. Unbelievable? See for yourself below.
