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.”
