Motorists are tired of swerving around potholes

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. --  If you drive along certain streets and roads in and around Kennewick chances are you've had to swerve around some big potholes.

Crews have patched up some of the problem areas, but normal weathering is forcing them to come back to the same spots over and over again.

Drivers having to battle one of the problem spots near Clearwater and Union hope the problem is fixed soon. 

"It makes you feel like you're a crazy driver because you're swerving. It is getting that bad and they need to fix them," says driver Melissa Smith- Esche. The holes have become such a problem that people like Marcus Thomas from Chicago is saying it's getting bad, "I'm from a bigger city like Chicago where I see a lot of potholes so I mean for this town and the size it is, it should be more manageable in my opinion."

According to Kennewick's municipal services department, most complaints are coming from the Grandridge Boulevard behind Cost-Co, and Clearwater Avenue between Union and Edison. Crews will be out next week to patch up the holes and are considering re-paving some of the streets.
