Traffic cones are used for plenty of things in South Philly, as the PPD’s “no savesies” efforts during the winter months have shown. But have you ever seen a pothole being filled with a traffic cone still inside of it?
That’s what happened in Dickinson Square West, just across from Dr. Brian Kron’s Eye Center at 1414 S. 5th St.
“They came out with three men and a driver and threw it in there with the pontoon still in the hole,” said Dr. Kron. “I came out and asked if they were going to do the job properly and they just laughed and drove away.”
“I contacted 3-1-1 to say a cone was in a pothole and it had been paved over and now the repair was sinking in,’ said Suzanne Flint.
