Filling in Potholes on West Main

The Amtrak parking lot is getting fixed. For reals.  #

  • No, this is not for reals. They are just putting some gravel down and spraying some crap on top of it. 6 months from now it will be exactly the same. They need to pave it already. As it stands, I avoid parking my car there on general principle when I take a train on an overnight trip. Seriously, the idea of paying them money for the privilege of parking on that BMX dirt bike track is absurd.

  • Seriously, it’s like they’re going out of their way to avoid solving the problem.

  • I hope it is back to potholes in a few months. Anything that slows the take over of this town by wussy yuppies is fine by me. “Whaaaa, mommy, those bad people got dust on my Range Rover!!!!”

  • Gravel gets added every year. I hope this spray stuff is safe and that it works.

    I hate the last bit of my walk home because of all that dirt (I live on the other side of the tracks from the lot). I walk in a cloud from the bridge over the tracks to my door when there are people driving through the space. It might not sound like that big of a deal, but it happens almost every day. I feel for the people trying to eat outside at Mel’s, L’Etoile, and Maya.

    On top of the dust problem, the sidewalk by the entrance to the lot is a pretty treacherous, especially in rain or snow. I don’t know why, but those sidewalks are slanted.

    Anyway, I’m happy they are making an effort to improve the property.

  • Maybe they’re holding off from paving it in hopes that a developer will snatch it up and do something useful with the property. It’s in such a prime location that could really energize West Main. It’s a shame to see it wasted on just another parking lot.
