Some years back, NYSDOT resurfaced Rt 376 by laying an inch of asphalt atop the crumbling surface, but the underlayer continues to deteriorate and the top coat delaminates.
The situation at Westview Terrace, just south of Red Oaks Mill (clicky for more dots):
The patch just to my right is a hand-tamped cold patch job, which obviously isn’t sufficient to repair the damage.
We’ve been told that NYSDOT no longer does proactive maintenance: until somebody calls in a problem, it’s not their problem. I’m starting to document problems here as part of the record.
