Pothole Patrol: Revisiting Oyster Bay roads – ‘Nothing has been done’
One of the worst streets for potholes during Thunderbolt12’s
recent tour of Long Island’s roads can be found in a neighborhood just off Old
Country Road in the Town of Oyster Bay.
Residents who live in the Charles Street/Kraemer Lane community say they have been complaining about the conditions of their roads
Lorraine Burnard spoke with News 12 in 2018 about the
craters. Today, she says the conditions are worse and nothing has been done
Back in 2018, Town of Oyster Bay spokesman Brian Nevin
admitted that the road was in “desperate need of repair” and that “help was on
"He lied to us. He went on TV and he lied," said
News 12 returned to an Oyster Bay neighborhood that complained about potholes back in 2018. They are still complaining today.
Neighbors told News 12 that they pay a lot in taxes and want
their streets repaved, not patched.
The Town of Oyster Bay offered a statement about potholes in
“We have repaved over 300 streets that were in worse shape
as the prior administration did not invest in roadways. The Kraemer Lane area
is scheduled for paving later this year after a short delay due to the COVID-19
