Bowen street is pot hole central especially the last block of it as it nears the towns only stoplight. The snow is never plowed on that last block near the driveways of the people there, it is alway the non inhabited side of the street that gets any plowing done to it. Bowen street is where all the walkers walk down in the warmer months because of the shade, and it's fairly flat and wider and not slanted as it is on Chicago Avenue. Many times there have been incidents and the traffic is rerouted onto Bowen Street because it is the only way, when Chicago Avenue is blocked. How about sending a little repair effort to the road so the plow can plow it without digging into a pothole, or make it a better road for the times when it sees even heavier traffic. Anyone that drives on it, drives wherever the holes are not and if that means driving on the opposite side of the road, they do. I have done so to avoid the hardship on my car.

I agree, my parents live on bowen street as well as operate a business there. Last winter my mother ripped the front end of her car off hitting a pot hole covered by snow. They have lived there for ten years and the rode has always been in poor condition.

Why put any more $ in Savanna. I live there my self. It just a wast of time to put any more $ in it.

Lived here all my life...just keeps getting worse and worse. Don't see much change moving forward. But I live the river-some things never change.

I have lived on bowen street for almost 40 yrs. I walk in the street for exercise because the sidewalks are more of a hazzard than the road. that is a low bar to hurdle. I encourage every/anyone to write a letter to the editors in the time journal or even post something to the counsil members to let them know how you feel. some of them are great! but in my opinion some are the spawn of evil. give it a try though
