Vermont’s Potholes Are a Big Problem

I know you will see some big potholes this time of the year around the Capital Region, but our friends to the east in Vermont are having big trouble filling theirs.

Vermont’s Governor Peter Shumlin was out filling them himself. Pothole repairs in Vermont this year are expected to cost the tiny state $1.3 million dollars.  Here in New York we spend that much just patching up Pearl Street after a winter.

That $1.3 million is a ton of money for the little state of Vermont. They can’t spread the tax base 12 million ways like we do here in New York. They’ve got to sell a lot of maple syrup to fill the financial holes now, not to mention the potholes.

Here’s the front end alignment wreaking details from the Burlington Free Press.
