Are pot holes here to stay on Hamden roadways?

Pot holes and cracked streets are of frustration for Quinnipiac students and Hamden residents.

Mayor of Hamden, Curt Leng said in a statement, “my team has worked hard paving the streets and fixing our sidewalks. I am proud of the progress we’ve made over these few years, but there’s much more to do and we need to keep this important investment into our neighborhoods going.”

The Hamden Legislative Council authorized $250,000 in the Local Improvement Program (LoCIP). This money will be used towards fixing sidewalks and curbs across Hamden.

For some students, they won’t believe the repairs to Hamden roadways until they see the work being done.

“Yeah, they’re allocating the money, but they can allocate whatever they want,” senior, Sean Raggio said. “Until I see a paved road it’s just talk.”

Mount Carmel Avenue has recently been repaved. This was one of the many streets in Hamden that has caused frustration for residents and their cars.

Currently, there is not a date set for when construction will begin.
