Road turns to rubble after maintenance ends
Residents on Centerport's West Spring Hollow Road say the town has let their road fall into disarray.
Centerport decided the road was private about four years ago and ceased maintaining it. A judge recently ruled the road is a public highway. The Town of Huntington is appealing.
Homeowners say they will continue to live at risk due until the road is repaired. One neglected pothole has grown to crater-size since maintenance ended. Now, garbage trucks refuse to drive up the road, and one homeowner's oil company is refusing further deliveries until repairs are made. Homeowners like Stephan Pinsky and Arthur Menton say they fear an ambulance wouldn't be able to make it up the road either.
"It is a real safety hazard," says Stephan Pinsky.
