If you drive a car, you know that potholes are starting to pop up...especially around the time winter transitions into spring. But why do potholes only seem to be a big problem when the weather warms up? Well, that’s because potholes result from a combination of water going through freeze-thaw cycles, as well as traffic on the roadway.
Our roads are made of water-resistant materials. Typically, water will run off the road to the shoulder, or other drainage areas. But as a road ages and more traffic passes over it, cracks develop and water is able to seep into and underneath the pavement. In the spring months, this spells trouble for our roads.
The Borough crews can't be everywhere all the time so we need our residents to help us out. When you see a pothole, please report it to us by clicking the link.
