Nassau Co. Sets Up Pothole Hotline To Address Issues

MINEOLA, N.Y. (WCBS 880) — Nassau County has created an easy way for residents to report potholes.

Driving around on Long Island is like driving through an obstacle course. Residents have been extra cautious driving through Nassau County as they try to avoid the massive potholes that have led to so many flat tires, reports WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall.

WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall has the details

County Executive Ed Mangano wants to hear from residents, so he set up an e-mail address and phone number for the public to report potholes. Many county roads have become riddled with potholes, thanks in large part to the barrage of winter storms to batter the Tri-State since Christmas.

Mangano said this will help the Department of Public Works to determine where the biggest pothole problems are located.

Residents who spot hazardous potholes in their area should send an e-mail the following e-mail address: pothole_emergencies@nassaucountyny.gov.

Residents can also call Nassau County’s DPW at (516) 571-6900.

    pothole report for Lakeville Estates section in East Meadow: corner of Spruce and Hemlock La.–dip in road and pothole; deep hole on corner of Gates and Oswego; On Cedar Dr @ Merrick Ave. as reported in Newsday. Perhaps a temporary repair fill can be used until permanent repairs can be made–whatever can be done will be so helpful.
    Difficulty getting to this site. Hope this message gets to the right people.

    I called about a pothole causing cars to bottom out on Peninsula Blvd. and a stretch of roadway on Peninsula Blvd. where the top layer of roadway has been stripped. This was done a week ago and no repairs yet.
