Pothole Patrol: Long Islanders frustrated with hazardous road conditions
Potholes are being seen across Long Island just as the winter weather is becoming a big factor.
Rose Tagliagambe walks to catch the bus to every day on California Place South in Island Park. She says it is one of the worst potholes in her area.
“Right now, it’s very dangerous because if you look, it’s dark and it’s puddles and you cannot see how deep they are,” Tagliagambe says.
She says she has reached out to local politicians but has not heard anything back.
Gov. Kathy Hochul announced that New York is giving $1 billion for Operation Pave Our Potholes.
“We’re coming after the potholes,” Hochul says. “Enough is enough.”
The governor says New Yorkers spend around $632 a year because of road damage done to their vehicles
News 12 viewers also say potholes on the Long Island Expressway are potentially dangerous.
