I do blactop for a living and these holes have to be done right in order to stay. First the edges should be cut straight sor a cleaner adheissin. next they have to use emulsion in the intire hole and the edges. if they are real deep they should do it in 2 courses. and finally should be rolled with adeqit wheight to insure compaction.

is savoy in pittsfield? why dont you people who live outside of pittsfield get jobs in your town ?no need for us pittsfielders to farm our jobs out to non locals . its just like illegal immigrants coming into america and taking our jobs. you outsiders are no differant. if you live outside pittsfield but yet work in pittsfield dont bring your trash with you because your town makes you pay to get rid of it. just another way you immigrants take advantage of pittsfield. then you have the balls to make remarks about pittsfield. you have no rights here because you do not do anything to make pittsfield better. just keep taking.

Road conditions in Massachusetts are much worse than in neighboring Columbia County, NY. I don't know if the difference stems from initial roadbed preparation, construction quality or maintenance schedules, but the end results are strikingly different. I try to avoid Pittsfield streets at all costs.

if you want to hit some fun pot holes, try the end of asci drive. it makes pecks road feel as smooth as glass.

maybe they should fix them instead use the money for stupid things that ARE NOT needed!
