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.

The problem: The entrance to Longmeadow Shopping Center near Columbia Bank and the Pennsylvania Dutch Market is pitted with potholes that nearby resident Ellis Duffey described as "so deep you could bust springs in your car if you didn't take your time."
The potholes have gone unaddressed for months amid road work on Longmeadow Pike and construction at the shopping center, Duffey said.
Traffic turning into the shopping center slows to such a crawl while crossing the potholes that it can hold up the rest of the intersection, he said.
"Seems to me like it shouldn't take much blacktop to fix 'em," Duffey said.
Who could fix it: RD Management, which owns the shopping center
