LETTER: Roads in and and around Nelson need to be better maintained

Potholes shouldn’t be guarded by a traffic cone

Last week a traffic cone was placed over a pothole in the area where Lakeside Drive meets the Walmart parking lot, one of many potholes throughout the city. Let’s see how long it takes for the city crews to respond with proper repairs.

Outside of the city in late winter, there were two major vehicle accidents in a three-week span, that were reportedly caused by snow or ice melting and running across the roads. Common sense accident prevention thinking is required by those responsible for road maintenance. It’s easy to schedule a sand truck to known spots and apply a sand traction restorer.

Nelson
