A drive on Route 9A in the Ossining area is not only a bumpy one, it could result in a flat tire.
"Our friend's wife blew her tire right up there on 9A, bent the rim, a thousand dollars’ worth of damage," said driver Jim Picciano.
Picciano is among a chorus of drivers begging any official who will listen to plug the potholes that plague Route 9A.
"They are huge," he said. "Somebody has to do something."
On Monday morning, Department of Transportation workers patched potholes on the southbound side of Route 9A between Stormytown Road and the Croton River Bridge.
More work is expected in the coming days.
The DOT released a travel advisory stating one lane is expected to close along Route 9A in each direction between Route 117 in the Town of Mount Pleasant and Route 9 in the Town of Ossining, weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. through Feb. 13.
The work comes after state Sen. Pete Harckham contacted DOT officials demanding something be done to address a flood of constituent complaints.
Picciano said he's happy to see some work final being done on the road but that it's far from enough.
He wants a permanent solution so the potholes don't return next year.
