The freezing and thawing of rain, sleet, snow and ice can turn our crowded roads into rough terrain. Everyone on the road benefits when we report potholes as we see them but different government agencies maintain different roads. Here is a quick guide to reporting potholes so that you and everyone on the road can steer clear of flat tires and other pothole-related road hazards.
Earlier this week, Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci and Highway Superintendent Kevin S. Orelli evaluated the "Pothole Killer," a longer-lasting, more cost-effective and efficient pothole repair solution.
