A motorist drives over a 5-inch pothole located slightly above St. Sebastian Way's right turn lane that has been annoying drivers.

WHAT: A 5-inch pothole, located slightly above the street’s right turn lane from Walton Way, has been annoying drivers for months, despite the fact that St. Sebastian Way is relatively new – just three years ago, it was expanded from Augusta’s medical district to Riverwatch Parkway. The extension, which included new pavement, cost $30 million.

WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: Though the Georgia Department of Transportation led the original project, City Traffic Engineer Steve Cassell said filling the pothole would be the responsibility of his staff.

ACTION PROMISED: Cassell said he will put in a work order for the hole. “There’s a pothole on St. Sebastian Way already?” Cassell asked. “We are fixing those every day. I’ll get somebody to look at it and fix it as soon as we can.”

Give them a break

It makes news because it this is one of the features the paper has. Thank you AC for this. Do not worry about the "Negative Nellies". Not everyone wants to only report the negative.
