Pothole in Woodstock, Illinois

Should the City of Woodstock repair this pothole? Now?

This pothole, in the westbound lane on Russel Court by the McHenry County Government Center, is creating a traffic hazard. The size has been growing, and the pavement around it is cracking. The City should have fixed it before it ever got this bad.

Hundreds of cars each day must navigate around or over it. Most don't go over it, because cars are often parking along the north curb of Russel Court, especially when the parking lot is full. Going around it usually means driving across the center line of the roadway, not a cheap traffic violation if you get caught at it. The pothole is between the parking lot entrance to the courthouse and the traffic light at Route 47.

The Woodstock City Council recently did not approve a contract for street maintenance. Did that contract include pothole repairs?

Maybe a phone call to 815.338.6118 would provide a little encouragement to Public Works to fix this, which must be one of the worst in Woodstock. You can call right now; if it's after-hours, just leave a nice message.

If you prefer to email, send your request to pwdept@woodstockil.gov
