Beware Car-Swallowing Pothole in Somerville

On Washington Street eastbound - I think past the touchless carwash - there is a manhole sunk about 5-7 inches below the surface of the street. I hit it dead-on the other day and I thought the car was going to fall apart. I called the City today and they're going to go look for it.

Just a heads up - be careful on Washington Street!

Thanks for the heads up. I tend to travel that stretch every once in awhile. I'll make sure to keep my eyes open for it.

The radio got turned off itself when I hit that damn pothole at 40mph.

You people with the 19's or 18's should look for bubbles now. My 18" Bridgestones have 2 bubbles in the sidewalls and I have'nt even hit any serious potholes yet... 400.00 to replace a tire...Oh my!

I'd say Michelin Pilot Sport ZP FTW

It's right at the intersection with Inner Belt Road - Call the City and they will notify DCR...that's what Somerville 3-1-1 told me. More people to complain the greater likelihood it will get fixed...
