Work began Tuesday to redo what some Wauconda Township residents recently described as a shoddy dead-end street with sunken and cracked pavement near Port Barrington.

At a meeting in mid-August, some Geraldine Lane residents complained to the township board about the poor condition of their street a little more than a year after it was resurfaced.

Wauconda Township Highway Commissioner Joe Munson said crews were out "patching" the road Tuesday. He didn't elaborate.

Munson told the homeowners at last month's meeting he knew Geraldine Lane was "not right" and that a solution would be coming.

One homeowner told township officials that a garbage truck had sunk into the road the day after the resurfacing was finished in May 2010. Another complained about standing water and crumbling asphalt.
