Potholes Are Forming Much Quicker Than Usual
According to WILX-TV 10, it's being called the worst possible scenario for our already crumbling roads in Michigan.
Personally speaking, I was driving down Hamilton Road yesterday in Okemos during the evening hours, when all of a sudden I hit a big pothole in the middle of the road. Luckily I didn't pop a tire but boy did I feel the impact in the car.
January's crazy winter weather is catching many off guard. Not just drivers noticing more potholes than normal but also many road departments across our state.
Chad Gamble, Public Service Director for the city of Lansing said, "these freeze and thaw cycles are the worst possible scenarios for the roads and it just forces us to put band aids on the roads as opposed to performing more long term capital improvements like resurfacing the entire road."
Lansing residents can report potholes by using the "Lansing Connect" app for smartphones. The app allows you to also upload a picture or video.
