Why Is Coulter a Breeding Ground For Potholes in Amarillo?
It's an honest question. Why is Coulter a breeding ground for potholes? It always seems like as soon as they're fixed, three more pop up.
The craziest part of it all is that it isn't limited to just one part of Coulter. It's the whole damn street.
My commute to and from work takes me from one end of Coulter to the other until it becomes McCormick. Along the way, I feel like a running back playing in the football game of a lifetime. The potholes are the guys trying to keep me from the end zone that I have to dodge.
The worst of these potholes is in between 34th and 45th. There is a monster of a pothole. In fact, it isn't a pothole. It's a crater. If I ever needed a quick reminder to pay attention to the road, it would be accidentally sinking one of my tires into that pit.
The pothole situation is one that plagues city streets all over the nation, but I don't ever remember seeing a road have so many problems. Again, as soon as one is fixed it seems three more pop up.
After the winter blast we had, there were major pot holes and a lot of work was done on Coulter. How is it that not too long after, we're already back with baby sinkholes interrupting our rush to and from work?
I really am interested in knowing if there is any kind of "scientific" answer.
Also, keep an eye out when you're driving. I've had more than one friend wind up with mechanical problems after hitting some of these potholes. As one friend put it, "some of those things will change your radio station."
