Pothole problems on Route 5 in West Springfield

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – West Springfield’s pothole problems on Riverdale Street (Route 5), are of serious concern to drivers.

Northbound drivers near the Riverdale Shops did their best to avoid letting potholes damage their tires and their car. Dan Sadler of Westfield told 22News that damage from potholes has cost him plenty this winter.

“I totaled a car on Route 91 in Springfield. Hit a pothole in the breaks in the bridge through downtown, the pothole snapped the whole front of my truck,” Sadler said.

It’s up to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation to fix potholes on Route 5. A West Springfield highway department spokesman said Mass DOT fixes them as soon as they find them.
