Petition started to resurface Adams Avenue – “You can literally damage your car by traveling on it”

FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — Looks like some Freeport residents have had enough of the road conditions and have started a petition to have one road in the city resurfaced, now.

A petition has been started stating that approximately a quarter of mile, from the Adams Ave Fire Station, South, to the National Guard Armory is getting so bad, “you can literally damage your car by traveling on it”. It goes on to say the black top on the road is so tore up and pot holes literally covers the street, coming and going.

Susan Diehl has a petition to re-surface the road. You can view or sign the petition here.

At the time of the writing 112 of 200 signatures requested have signed.

Probably should have added another 0 to that number.

The city of Freeport does have what they call the “iWorQ Citizen Engagement” request app. Citizens can report potholes, water main breaks, stray dogs, downed limbs, etc. You can see the iWorQ for yourself here.

    The amount on the petition will continue to go up as long as people sign it, we are not just seeking 200 if we reach 200 it will switch to 300 and so forth and so on. Thank-you

    It’s not just Adams Ave that needs resurfacing, but the infrastructure below the surface needs attention as well – otherwise, adding more weight to a deteriorating substructure will accelerate the rate of collapse of the street.
    In addition, the Third Ward’s water supply is still supplied largely through lead water pipes (increasing the risk of lead-poisoning) and many of them are leaking and causing sink holes as well.

      Yes other streets need attention too. That’s why more people should get involved in their community and not just sit back and complain. Seek out individuals you think can make a difference, communication can be powerful!
