The entrance to King’s College—the gateway for hundreds of young minds into a world of academic achievement, critical thought and self-discovery—has a really big pothole.

The entrance to King’s College—the gateway for hundreds of young minds into a world of academic achievement, critical thought and self-discovery—has a really big pothole.


Remarks: Pothole is perhaps an inaccurate term to describe this thing. It’s more like a pot-gully. Or a pot-gulch—it’s big, is our point. The hole (caused by a broken water main, according to a rep from King’s administration) is occasionally blocked by an orange barricade, ensuring that cars and pedestrians aren’t accidentally trapped in the hole and never heard from again. Either way, college-goers are forced to weave their way onto campus when they could be making a beeline to knowledge. How sad.


Who's Responsible?: Ken Newman, maintenance supervisor at King’s. 422-1271, x145.

Status: Fixed
