Today In The Port

TONIGHT'S TALK: Can we discuss the potholes in Freeport? Or as some may call them catacombs, caves, caverns, chuckholes, craters, faults, fissures, cavities, depression, dips, fractures, gaps, holes, pits, pockets, ruts, splits, giant kettles - studio apartments. :). Yes, there has been a lot of snow. Yes, a lot of ice too. Probably isn't much better in your town, but make no mistake, the potholes in Freeport are pretty bad. Drive carefully. But what do you think? How are the roads on your street? Chime in. We'd honestly like to know what the roads are like where you live. Maybe we can create a really really large reference point of streets for future spring projects :)

It would be easier to name the streets that don’t have potholes.

Here, maybe this is the solution... https://www.indy100.com/article/this-man-is-painting-penises-on-potholes-so-the-council-has-to-take-action--ekSuZ63mgW

Shawnee in the arcade. The whole arcade could use new streets. Like the most of the town

Complaining to the City will get you NOWHERE!! Thank you City of Freeport!

Been a mild winter can't understand why we would have pot holes

In Rockford you can call and the potholes are filled. Why not in Freeport?

Maybe we should call dominos

I hit one the other day here in Freeport & didn’t even know I was coming up on it. I hit so hard my tire just about blew. I’m sure that’s real great for my shocks & suspension as well. Seriously it’s terrible in this town & a lot of other areas around. Where is the tax payers money going exactly? Definitely not to the roads!

I drive through out Freeport every day. I have yet to find a single street that doesn't have a multitude of potholes. What makes it worse is people walking in the streets. There's no way to dodge the axle bending/shock destroying holes and the people too. Not sure what can be done though. Doesn't it have to be a certain temperature for even temporary fill-ins to be done? Someone enlighten me please!

Empire between Float and Rotzler is one big pothole

Shawnee Street in the Arcade

Oak Avenue and empire street by the school

It use to be if you blew a tire the city was responsible but this city isn't responsible for anything. Try driving down Dewey. It was better snow covered.

Which streets? Pick one, anyone. Our streets are a disgrace. Embarrassed to have people visit our city. Id like to know where the hell that 6 cent a gal city gas tax is going? How many thousand gallons of gas gets sold in this town each day. Why cant they pick a section of town, go up & down the north/south streets fill holes. Then the east/west streets in same section. THUS moving to another section of town etc. Seriously its time the city starts showing the citizens they can get something done here.

Shawnee street in the arcade and south 17th street. It’s really ridiculous!!

Empire and Rotzler a hole big enough to swallow the front end of your car they’ve tried to fix it but it’s still bad.

They are huge all over town!! Ridiculous! Filling them just doesn't cut it anymore. That works for a few weeks, then it's back to the same way it was. The streets have been deplorable for years.

Allofum 😂💯 Idk one street I drive on that I dont have to swear🤷‍♀️

A over freeport is horrible

Burchard, lots of pots holes

The 500 block of East Center is, according to the man who brings water softener salt "the worst street in town". The school buses go by every day on the holes. I've e mailed and called city officials. I was told at the Street Dept. the street isn't on any future lists.

Potholes are ridiculous. Hubby broke a strut on his truck. Not cheap getting it replaced. Nothing was done last year and it’s only getting worse. What is our city manager (cough, cough) doing about it or anything else in this town for that matter?

When I had enough of the potholes in my lane last summer, I had it regraveled. Cost to me $5,200. You city folks feel better now?

All over the Arcade!

The ones on W Pleasant get bigger and deeper every year. Instead of patching them repeatedly, they need to tear down and reblacktop the whole street.
