Milford crews work to patch potholes


MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — In just a few hours, Milford city crews filled dozens of potholes.

“We’ve been out everyday regardless of the weather unless it’s raining or snowing,” said Paul Bisconti, a backhoe operator with the City of Milford.

Potholes are springing up everywhere. “It made my car go up and down,” said Jen Cooper.

Tackling potholes is a never-ending job. “For everyone you do there’s ten more probably. Everywhere you look you could spent a day on it,” Bisconti said.

Milford crews are working hard to prevent damage to cars. Bisconti told News 8, “The bigger ones that you can’t see especially they are underwater you can blow a tire out bend a rim. It’ll be a costly repair.”

One local says he hit a pothole and got a double blow out. “Just hit the pothole and then the car didn’t feel right. I look and heard air coming out of one tire and I heard air coming out of another one,” said Herm Frolger.

People are doing their best to dodge potholes. Jen Cooper said, “I try to avoid them at all costs.” Art Vercola added, “Be careful. Be cautious. Be a little bit more alert.” Marie Fisk said, “They need to be fixed though everywhere. Every city. I drive a lot everyday and they all need to be fixed.”

If you see a pothole in Milford you can report it to the city on its website.
