Residents in Pittsburgh’s Brookline neighborhood are complaining about the city’s lack of response to a pothole problem.
Some of the complaints have been regarding Woodward Avenue, where residents said potholes are a growing problem.
The neighbors living on Woodward Avenue said there are other roads nearby that are being worked on but they’re in better shape.
People who drive the road daily like Carolina Gualtieri are infuriated.
“It’s really been bad. Every time we come around we hit a pothole. My tires loosen all the time,” Gualtieri said.
Several neighbors like Pat Bittner said they’ve made repeated calls to the city with no response.
“I’ve been trying and trying. We get no satisfaction,” Bittner said.
Neighbors said the road is especially hazardous for children and in the winter.
City officials said they’re targeting about 130 streets for paving this year and they have enough asphalt to cover about 60 miles of roads.
