Frank Petrignani, communications director of Brookhaven Town's highway department, told Patch that the department currently has deployed crews throughout the area to repair them.
"Thanks to above average temperatures, asphalt plants are open to supply hot mix material for these repairs," Petrignani said in an email. "The Department will continue its use of hot mix asphalt until the plants once again close. In the absence of hot mix, cold patch material will be used to continue addressing pothole repair."
Brookhaven residents, such as those in Farmingville, Holtsville and parts of Ronkonkoma, can report potholes to the highway department at 631-451-9200.
Islip Town, which includes areas of Ronkonkoma and Holbrook, is reporting that the pothole situation is better than last year, with less potholes than in the past. Residents that have potholes can report them to 631-224-5610.
Patch asked residents on the Sachem Patch Facebook Page where are the potholes they have seen, and here are several that they have listed:
Beth Santagata Vets Hwy eastbound from Lakeland to Broadway Ave. they've patched, but those patches are breaking up
Karen Hughes Hearty Granny Road in Farmingville...its horrible! You think the town would repave this road instead of patching it every year considering an elementary and HS is located on this road which makes for a heavy bus route!
Jenn WZ Hawkins ave bridge over the LIE, a complete mess.
Linda Marsh Giordano If they are getting to the highway dept I'll let you know. Corner of Granny rd and mount McKinley ave. farmlngville . 1 big giant pothole
Christienne Raimondi O'Rourke Hawkins AVENUE.!! Hideous!!!!
Beth Kelskey-Lo Meli Leed blvd aka horseblock !! Horrible!!!
Jill McKiernan All of willow, cross street blue point rd, farmingville
Melissa CV Middle of intersection of 10th avenue and ridgewood Avenue in Holtsville, huge pothole, big enough and deep enough to fit an entire tire…
