The aftermath of the recent record-breaking storms has produced more than mountains of snow. As anyone who has driven or ridden on area roads recently can attest -- pothole season is here. The conditions have been ideal for forming potholes – freezing temperatures at night, above freezing temperatures during the day and plenty of water from melting snow to seep into minute road surface cracks. As this daily freeze-thaw cycle expands and contracts pavement, the dreaded potholes are created. No area is immune from their presence and they seemingly appear overnight. However, there is something residents can do: Report potholes
on the County’s website or call 240-777-6000.
