Crews Temporarily Repair Potholes

Posted:

Now that the weather has warmed up...for a little bit at least...crews are out temporarily plugging the potholes.

Keith Glass, Supervisor of Roads and Streets says the asphalt breaks up after awhile from the continuous freezing and thawing of the ground.

If the temperatures stayed cold, the ground wouldn't be much of a problem.

He says the potholes will be there until the summertime - when the asphalt plants open and they're able to get hot mix to permanently seal them up.

"When it's this time of the year, the freezing, thawing from our warm days to cold nights, with the moisture, anything we put in usually just pops out. But we're just trying to keep them filled so the traveling public isn't bombing into holes and, you know, damaging their vehicles or tires or things like that," says Keith Glass, Supervisor, Roads & Streets.

Glass also wants to remind the public to be cautious of crews out working.

If you see flashing lights, make sure to slow down.
