(Providence) Pothole Project an option for Burlington?

A group of Providence cyclists have created a public map to document pot holes around the city. Some of Burlington's streets are in pretty bad shape, especially after a long winter and lots of snowplows going through. According to Transportation for America the percentage of Vermont roads in 'poor' condition is 9.8%, whereas US average is 5.8%. This creates dangerous situations for cyclists and other vulnerable road users. The Providence Pothole Project could be a great way for Burlington residents to create awareness for these dangerous spots on the city's streets. Here is how it's done:
Visit the map page to read more about it (and add your own pot holes to the map).
