Shake, Rattle + Roll: Here Are The Worst Potholes In Eastern Maine
Earlier this week, we told you that Bangor has the special honor of coming in among the top in the Nation for worst potholes, but we wanted to find out exactly where these car-crunchers are, so we can avoid them!
We asked. You answered. And from those answers, we compiled a list of some of the worst potholes in Eastern Maine.
We got specifics of a few spots in Brewer that have tortured tires this week. There are craters along State St., Essex St., Ohio and Hammond Streets in Bangor that you'll want to avoid.
Along the Stillwater section of the bridge in Old Town has become a battlefield that needs to be carefully navigated.
Waterville, the entire city, made the list. As did spots in Ellsworth, too.
And we're not implying, by any means, that this is from lack of effort. In fact, we even heard from some of our favorite Public Works and DOT folks today, who confirmed that this pothole season has been the worst they've seen since the Ice Storm of 1998...and that's saying something! Mother Nature, not our road crews, shoulders all the blame for this year's tire-crushing behemoths.
So check this gallery out before you take to the roads today. It could just save your tires from becoming collateral pothole damage.
