Kansas City Pothole Crisis Cont'd

A few busy midtown streets are down to one lane and the problem is WORSE THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN in KCMO. Here's a missive that blames weather rather than a cycle of City Hall neglect. Read more:

Potholes continue to pop up as freeze-thaw cycle continues across the metro

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The sound of rolling metal on cracking pavement has echoed through Kansas City for months. And it will continue, as long as the potholes continue to pop up. And they will continue to pop up as long as the freeze-thaw cycle continues.

Driving from KCMO to OP last night I realized something, no big potholes in the Johnson County cities. I then realized why. The cities in Johnson county clear their streets. What causes KCMO to have such a huge amount of potholes is that they don't clear their streets. The snow and slush sit on the streets and freeze, thaw then refreeze. That causes potholes. JOCO clears their streets quickly which reduces the moisture on the streets which dry out and reduces the freeze thaw cycle. If KCMO would spend more on clearing all streets the number of potholes would be minimized and it would reduce the cost of repairing potholes and citizens cars and trucks and we would not be hearing this same sad tale over and over.

We have to come up with 90 million dollars for an airport people, we have to support the Uber wealthy in their quest to become the richest in the world! The citizens and Infrastructure are the last things sLIE and clowncil care about.

The current KCMO government does not want to address the infrastructure problem as it will not create a legacy for the outgoing mayor. Slie's legacy will be letting KCMO fall into total disrepair.
