If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you may live in Williamsport.

Poor New Berry! Used to be a nice area, until a few years ago. Now, it's worse than the lower end of E.3rd. St. before you get to the triangle. From decent neighborhoods to raise your family to armpit! - As far as the road system in NB, it's a flippin' disaster! When the 'Jokers' worked on one road, where you couldn't make a left hand turn... they were working on an adjacent street where you couldn't turn right!! WHO'S paying for my bent rim, anyway? - Now Lord Gabe wants to dump tax $$ into redoing 'Reach Road'!!- Question: How Many Tax Payers Actually Use Reach Road? - When it comes to local roads..The ONLY thing that will save Tax Payers Money.. Is when Gabe Hits It!!

You should come to Hazleton and West Hazleton for the Broad Street work. (OOPS, broke a shock, cracking the fuel filter.) Smoother than some of the back roads. And the lights will blind you at night!!

You can drive real slow down the driveway.

I mostly agree Erik, but being a hockey fan, I'd like to see that happen here in Williamsport.

As far as Arch St goes, I drive real slow on it and if the person behind me doesn't like it, TOUGH!!

Money for street repairs Is far more important than attracting entertainment to the city or ice hockey.

Money for streets is more important than a taxpayer-funded conference center that will sit empty most of the time.

But this is how tax money is wasted in the local, state and federal level.

Just change ice hockey to solar power and it becomes clear.

I agree Ms. Hamilton, a point about those roads you mentioned however, the Williamsport Water Authority did the work on those streets, they, imo, should have to REDO the work on those streets, for FREE!
