Why don’t they resurface Myrtle Avene between Dupree Drive and Gaddy Avenue?

Q. Why don’t they resurface Myrtle Avene between Dupree Drive and Gaddy Avenue in Seagate Village? All they ever do is fill in the potholes with gravel and seal them. Within a few months or less the potholes are back. This is because of the big trash trucks backing up the street.

A: According to the N.C. Department of Transportation, the problem is that it is a single pothole.

If the street is full of potholes, the city of Wilmington will resurface the entire road. Because it is a single pothole the city will continue to fill it with a cold mix or hot mix of asphalt.

Normally, streets are not resurfaced until a contractor makes a request. However if you would like to report the pothole or request street maintenance, call public services at 910-341-7879.
