Washed Out Roads from April Flood Still Have Not Been Fixed
Parts of Pensacola are sill feeling the effects of April's flood that washed out several roads.
While road crews have reparied some street, 7 weeks after the big rain storm, there is still a lot of work to do.
A hole at the corner of "A" and Gadsen Steets in Pensacola is estimated at 20 feet long, 10 feet wide, and at least 3 feet deep.
Pensacola resident, Ellison Bennet is concerned about safety hazards the large holes pose to pedestrians.
"As you go down Coyle Street they get worse, ten locations in one section of the city," said Bennet.
If you drive down Coyle Street often, you know the amount of work that still needs to be done there.
Navigating down Coyle Street can be quite the challenge.
Motorists must pay full attention to avoid the small potholes, the large holes, and various barricades in between.
A spokesman for the city says the engineering department is working with Underground utilities on sewer projects in the area.
Mayor Ashton Hayward says he's aware of the situation and would like to see the roads repaired faster.
"A lot of them have collapsed because the pipes are busted, so we're proactively working on that every single day to get those fixed because we do have a lot of those within the city and the county," said Hayward.
