  • I know this pothole was patched and the FH access lid replaced by your contractor following my previous report but, checking today, the patch is already sinking and with the truck wheels going straight over the top, the patch and then the lid will soon go again.

    Strangely your contractor did a full repair on the the nearby pothole that I first reported simultaneously with this one but they only did what looked like a temporary repair here with predictable consequences.
