Rough weather means more potholes than normal - ABC 12 – WJRT – Flint, MI

Rough weather means more potholes than normal

Posted: Updated:

(02/23/14) - As winter slowly makes its way into spring, the thawing brings more than warmer temperatures - it means potholes.

The Saginaw County Road Commission says potholes are an even bigger problem this year than previous years.

You can report potholes to MDOT and file a claim on their website.

"They're craters," said William Antwine while stopping to get gas in Saginaw.

It seems like everywhere you turn, you'll find a few waiting for your tires.

"Man those potholes are everywhere," Antwine said.

It's not your imagination - the Saginaw County Road Commission says there are more potholes this year than usual.

You can thank our extreme temperature swings for that.

"I think this year it's a little more ridiculous than previous years," said Ashok Tyagi, while fixing his vehicle after running into a tire-hungry pothole.

"Time to go to work now, hopefully I can fix it," he said.

The county road commission says keeping up with the craters is a battle.

Everyday they're filling potholes, but the very next day they'll crack again.

It's important to note - you can only file a claim on MDOT's website if the damage happened on a state trunkline.
