A turn lane leaving the Greenwood Park Mall parking lot has been blocked off for weeks because of gaping potholes several feet wide.

A few holes opened up during the winter, and workers patched them as best they could in the cold weather. But winter dragged on and then was followed by rain, so the patches broke up, and the holes got wider. Now, the lane is closed, and Simon Property Group is hiring a company to repair the damage, spokesman Les Morris said.

Across the county, parking lots, strip malls and access roads into businesses are pocked with holes and cracks.
