These traffic cones outside a home on Nesbitt Drive have been in place for weeks on end. But the damage itself occurred months - maybe years - ago: upended asphalt that seemingly resulted from tree roots growing and expanding under the roadway itself.
We're officially placing this little portion of our community under Patch Watch: places and locations that could stand a little scrutiny and bear a little more attention.
Do you know of a road that needs repair; a sinkhole that needs filling; an intersection that needs a little more signalization; a sidewalk that is needed; or any place that could make Brookhaven or Chamblee a little safer or a little nicer? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll place the location under Patch Watch.
