To the Editor:

One thing must be finished concerning the potholes on I-80. My son is a primary responder/EMT and for the second time this 12 months has blown two tires out on his approach to work heading eastbound from Minooka.

The state of Illinois has not correctly repaired the street in additional than 5 years. This morning, there have been 12 vehicles stopped that have been stranded as a result of situation of the street inside one mile from mile marker 123-124. This isn’t solely harmful, however very expensive.

Once more, my son is a necessary employee throughout a really troublesome time in our world, and that is one much less downside he needs to be going through, nor ought to everybody else. He needs to be to work on time to assist in the pandemic as a substitute of ready 90 minutes for a tow due to the state of Illinois.
