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.

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

many in this county pay high property taxes ours were $6000 last year, I would like to know for what?! Lower our taxes if you aren’t going to put it to good use! Where does the money 💵 💴 💰 go?!

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

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

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.

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!

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

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!

Oak Avenue and empire street by the school

Maybe we should call dominos

Shawnee Street in the Arcade

Empire between Float and Rotzler is one big pothole

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.

A over freeport is horrible

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.

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.

All over the Arcade!

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?

Worst street I have drive on is the one going to Mrs Mikes! It is terrible

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.

OMG it's horrible in town driving anywhere

Dewey street....I went down that street the it here night an can't avoid the pot holes.....an the school buses use that street.....an filling in the potholes don't help you need to resurfes the hole thing

I live on a dead end street and we have needed a whole new road for years but all they do is come fill the craters in the spring and by winter they are craters again!
