Residents along Allison Avenue and Woodlawn Street in Groves say their streets have been puckered with potholes and drain poorly after years of rainstorms.

Their neighborhood, built in the late ’50s and early ’60s, is now overgrown with large live oak trees that were just saplings when the roads were originally built.

Taylor Cochran has lived on Allison Avenue since 1994. His family moved into the house when he was a child.
