Whatever happened to Avenue S? It used to be the smoothest glide through town. Now, east of Fort Crockett, it’s a bumpy, dumpy ride.

Every road in town was smooth at some point. Roads wear out.

Even seawall blvd is terrible in some places. Don't even drive down 19th street unless you want to jar your teeth.

BB, 19th is like a high end freeway compared to S. Ave P is so bad I've stopped using it, and I drive a Jeep. Last October our city manager told us the east end of P would be repaired in February, never happened. Avenues P and S, east west streets, are primarily used by us locals so aren't maintained. Galveston only maintains north south streets, for tourists of course.
