TELL US ABOUT IT: What are the roughest patches of road around Austin?


We’re on the hunt for the worst stretches of bone-rattling, suspension-battering pavement in the greater Austin area.

Potholes? Buckling asphalt? Inexplicable lurches in the roadway? We want them all — just make sure these are rough patches you’ve seen recently, not pavement mishaps that were fixed long ago.

Give us the location of the problem spot and a short description of what made it so bad. Be sure to include your email address so we can follow up with you. We’ll visit as many of the spots as we can and find out what officials plan to do about them.
