HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - We see comments about potholes all the time, and Club View Road in Huntsville definitely qualifies. They're not really potholes. They're skin patches but very big ones.
We found three of them, about 15 feet by 15 feet each, right in the middle of where Club View Road becomes Club View Court. The top layer's gone and there's loose gravel with big rocks covering what's there.
We also saw some concrete, which made me think that a crew other than Public Works had been working there. I contacted the City of Huntsville, and they said it could be sewer, cable or utility crews.
(Tuesday) morning, they e-mailed me with another update. It is the sewer department working on the street. They will be resurfacing the street, and it should be smooth again in 30 to 60 days.
We also checked out the corner of Euclid Avenue and Purdy Drive in Huntsville. The homeowners, commenting on our See, Click, Fix section, say people run the stop sign at that intersection all day. They're concerned that with small children and some seniors in the neighborhood, that someone's going to get hurt.
They see it mostly in the afternoons and evenings. So, it's not surprising that we didn't see much of that in the morning, but we did see a lot of rolling stops. There are quite a few rubber tracks at the corner where drivers not only didn't stop. They sped right through it.
We've forwarded all of this to Huntsville Police. We'll keep checking to see if and when they write tickets and if drivers start to slow down and stop here.
