Welcome back to our weekly update that highlights some of the cases appearing on 311 in the North End/Waterfront neighborhoods. All 311 cases are public information and can be found at 311.boston.gov.

Pothole at 61 Prince St North End

This 311 user writes, “This pothole has been on Prince St more than 6 years. The addition of new light posts and equipment had made it worse. There are many elderly people and children that use this path every day. I have seen kids and elderly fall and twist their ankles because of this pothole. This pothole also fills up with a lot of water when it rains. People standing close by in their nice clothes are often drenched by a wave of water when a car drives by. This pothole is a hazard and a lawsuit waiting.”
