Beware The Tire-Killing Pothole in Missouri Where 61 and 24 Meet
When I tell you that there's a tire-killing pothole on a Missouri highway, I speak from my own personal experience. I'll tell you exactly where the current tire villain is so hopefully you can avoid my fate.
Back in 2003, I was driving north on Highway 61 and going on the overpass where highways 61 and 24 meet. I hit a pothole that completely destroyed my tire. That was not a good day. Now there is another in a similar place.
Here's the exact place on Highway 61 in Missouri that this new massive pothole resides.
From a driver's perspective, this is the place to watch out for this pothole. The problem with the location of this bad boy is that it aligns almost too perfectly with where your right-side tires are.
I have just submitted this to the Missouri Department of Transportation on their website where you can also report problem spots on the road. The road repair crews can't obviously be everywhere at once. So for now, be warned if you travel on this overpass where Highway 61 and Highway 24 meet near West Quincy that your tires are in danger.
