Tell Us: Potholes in Huntington

Snow may be gone from the streets of Huntington, but potholes are opening up in its place. Where are the worst?

Just as apples and stripped bass have their prime season, so too do potholes. They are predictable, unavoidable and a sometimes dangerous rite of passage on Long Island.   

So far we've counted 30 potholes along 25A, a state road, between Northport and Huntington. These gravelly, asphalt mini graves are the scourge of any commute, spilling coffee and jarring your teeth at every opportunity.

Snow piles are still visible two weeks after the blizzard of 2013 slammed the region. Freezing and unfreezing of asphalt creates stress. Roads also took a beating, snow plows scrapping and pounding the pavement as they cleared roadways.

The net result: The roads around Huntington need fixing.

Patch is on a quest to uncover the roadways and intersections with the worst potholes. So sound off in the comments section and sound the alarm. Your car – and that minivan full of kids on the way to practice – will thank you.

All of 25A! Especially between Northport and Huntington. Unfortunately it's a state road, so we might be waiting forever. They patched a few of the holes yesterday, but it's still like playing Mario Kart.

25A is in rough shape.

Cuba Hill Road between Pulaski and Broadway...has been a disaster since winter 2011/2012 and has just gotten worse, north of Pulaski was finally patched the end of last week (for the time being) yet south of Pulaski was not touched. This road is highly traveled and should be re-paved not patched!
