Tire-Sized Sinkhole To Watch Out For

A tire-sized sinkhole has formed on the exit ramp from southbound Washington Boulevard to Columbia Pike.

The sinkhole, located in the right turning lane, appeared to have been partially filled in by a public works crew shortly after these photos were taken, but as of Saturday afternoon it remains a hazard to drivers.

    If this pothole was located in an Arlington magisterial district, the specific County Supervisor would have it fixed by early Monday morning.

    Because the pothole isn’t located in an Arlington magisterial district, the current at-large Arlington County Board will direct the police to investigate whether this pothole was purposely placed by a non-white traffic calming advocate.

      Efrem: Frequently wrong but never in doubt.

    Since I’m not a lib, thus I do not live my life via the socialist dictum of fallacy, I am more often right than wrong.

    The current all lib county board doesn’t have a clue how to fix a single pothole, but they think they have the smarts to create affordable housing in an upscale elitist lib mecca where $650,000 townhouses are the norm. They want to turn Arlington into a yuppified frat party for snot nose libs like you that think you know better than the rest of America how to live and prosper in America via the free market, liberty and freedom.

      When you’re right, you’re right. And Efrem is usually right.

    To add some signal to the noise, on Arlington-maintained roads, report potholes here: https://www.arlingtonva.us/Departments/EnvironmentalServices/cpe/concrete/resform.htm

    On VDot-maintained roads, report potholes here:http://www.vdot.virginia.gov/travel/citizen.asp

    Don’t use the silly gripe thing at the Washington Post.
