“The potholes are everywhere,” Jill says, “on both sides of Ravenna.”
Jill reported the potholes to SDOT and received a note back from Peg Nielsen of the SDOT Communications Office.
“Our crews have been regularly filling potholes,” Nielsen said, “and will continue to do so.”
According to SDOT’s Pothole Repair Status map, SDOT crews have patched multiple holes on the NE Ravenna Blvd corridor on more than 12 occasions since the beginning of 2011.
“However, because the street is in such poor condition, potholes patching doesn’t really solve the problem,” Nielsen said. ”The asphalt needs to be ground down, the base repaired, and then re-paved.”
SDOT has scheduled a repaving project for Ravenna Blvd in 2012. The street will be completely repaved from 15th Ave NE to E Green Lake Way N.
