Editor's note: Each Monday, The Herald-Mail will highlight an infrastructure issue or other problem and will try to find out what is being done to fix or improve the situation.

We will not tackle situations involving neighborhood or domestic disputes or consumer problems.

The problem: A pothole about 2 inches deep in West Antietam Street, in the westbound lane, under the South Prospect Street overpass.

Who could fix it: City of Hagerstown Public Works Department

What they say: When asked about the pothole Wednesday afternoon, City Engineer Rodney Tissue said crews would fill it soon. By Thursday morning, it had been patched.

Tissue said West Antietam Street was not due for resurfacing.

"It just needs routine maintenance," he said.
