NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Even after VDOT spent days fixing dozens of potholes across eastbound Interstate 264, many Hampton Roads drivers told WAVY.com they did not feel safe driving on the busy highway.
Potholes along I-264 Eastbound caused thousands of dollars in damage last week.
"All they did was a quick patch and so with the rain hits, it pops up. They are just putting pavement on top of concrete and that's not going to work," driver Charles Medley said.
Former VDOT Hampton Roads Administrator Dennis Heuer stepped down after VDOT commissioner Greg Whitley started an internal investigation about the pothole problems on I-264.
10 On Your Side went Heuer's Suffolk home to ask about his resignation and the pothole problems. Heuer opened then shut the front door before any questions could be asked.
This is also a slammed door to the drivers of Hampton Roads who want answers about the mess on I-264 last week.
Whitley said Heuer is not stepping down specifically because of the pothole problems on I-264.
Hampton Roads residents aren't so sure and they want more people to be held accountable for the potholes fiasco.
"That's not enough," Medley said. "He is stepping down, because he knows he messed up. He's paying contractors to do the job and they need to check behind them."
Drivers who talked to WAVY.com also want to know why VDOT paid more than $30 million of their tax money to pay a contractor who left a mess on the roads.
"The roads are ragged and cheap," driver Devon Wall said. "We pay too much in taxes for it to happen like that. It's ridiculous."
Some drivers worry emergency fixes on the interstate won't last until the summer when VDOT plans to make permanent repairs on the road.
