Area’s dreadful roads must be repaired now

The condition of the roads in Erie County is dreadful. It was clear that major and extensive reconstruction would be necessary after last winter. The pace of these repairs and the quality of these repairs is a cause for concern. Many severely damaged roads have not been tended to at this late part of the summer.

If these roads are subject to the effects of another winter prior to being fixed, they will certainly become unusable, as they are barely usable now. The repairs I have seen so far are basically patchwork and will not hold up through another winter. Proper repair needs to begin immediately.
