Patching potholes with bricks on Arbor Hills Drive

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — In one Jackson neighborhood, someone is patching up the potholes, by using bricks.

One woman said whoever they are, they’re good Samaritans.

The bricks are in potholes on Arbor Hills Drive.

We spoke with Mary Jackson, who told us she saw guys in a white truck pull up on Monday and started putting in the bricks like concrete.

While she’s grateful that someone is trying to help out, she still feels like it won’t fully fix the problem.

“It’s helping just a little bit but it’ll still mess your tires up,” she said. “I’ve bust a tire. I’ve bought a brand new tire on this street. It’s not even worth coming down this street.”

We contacted the City of Jackson about the bricks. They say their infrastructure management division will investigate the issue.
