Crumbling streets impede traffic
In the Sunnyslope neighborhood on the east side of Hollister,
there is a pocket of houses and streets that are in the
jurisdiction of San Benito County. Though El Camino Pairasio looks
urban, it is actually part of the county, and is badly in need of
repair. The road is full of potholes. Some have been patched, but
others are clearly visible.
