Potholes need to be filled, reader says
Dear Street Smarts, Q: I am hoping you can help to fix a problem that has been ignored for years by the city of Santa Cruz. For as long as I can remember, the roadway along Graham Hill Road from the Highway 1 off ramp to where it connects onto Ocean Street has been a rutted, potholed nightmare. Please see if something can be done. Thank you, Glenn Que, via email A: The work could be on the way in about a year as the city has plans to perform some sanitary sewer rehabilitation in the area in about a year, said Chris Schneiter, assistant public works director. “At that time, we will do some pavement repair, and if funds are available we will do an overlay,” he said.
