It's a topic that always gets a lot of discussion in Bowling Green, the condition of the city's streets.
One city official is concerned when it comes to the city's thoroughfares.
"Why are we having street cuts in roads, and why aren't they repaired faster?"
That's what Bowling Green City Commissioner Bill Waltrip has been hearing from residents about the roads.
The city has been making street cuts for its utility lines, but has been leaving some marks behind.
"It's a traffic issue, when people come up on those street cuts, when people come up on those street cuts, and if there's a pothole in that street cut, they'll swerve. I've actually seen a couple near misses up here on Smallhouse Road around 13th, 14th, and 15th," said Waltrip.
It's an issue the city and its public works department are trying to address.
They're looking at changing how they do things, including using concrete instead of gravel when working on street cuts.
"Alternate means of doing stuff when asphalt's not available such as with the concrete, but we could also look at some kind of temporary asphalt or cold mix asphalt," said BG Public Works Director Jeff Lashlee.
Another part of the Bowling Green road issue is crowned intersections.
"Streets get paved over the years they get higher and higher, and at the intersections, we do have occasional problems with that. The low parts need to remain low so water will continue to drain and not pond in the intersection," said Lashlee.
"It's a problem and hopefully as we move on with our street restoration programs, hopefully we can address the more egregious problems with those," said Waltrip.
It's a problem the city has already addressed at places like Main and Chestnut, but will continue to deal with for years to come.
The city also recently repaired a crown intersection at 7th and College.
This is all part of a busy time for working on city streets as Bowling Green prepares for an $850,000 re-paving project in June.
