NIVERVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Residents in Columbia County asked the Pothole Patrol to check out the potholes on Route 203, so that’s where we went.
Not only did we find them, but we also found Kevin Wheeler, a mechanic at local body shop Van Allen Automotive In Valatie.
He’s been fixing cars affected by potholes for the past 33 years and says he gets cars damaged by potholes weekly, which can be costly.
Department of Transportation spokesperson Heather Pillsworth giving us the following statement:
“We continue to monitor and address the conditions of Route 203 to ensure safety and will consider additional work as part of the development of the next DOT capital plan.”
