Cary crews searching for post-snow potholes
Posted February 5, 2014
Cary officials are on alert for potholes caused by recent winter weather.
Town officials are asking drivers to report potholes by calling 919-469-4090 during weekday office hours, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or tweeting @TOC_Traffic. The town will respond to pothole reports by alerting the owner of the road, whether it is the state, the town or a private property owner.
Officials plan to mend reported potholes on town-owned roads within one business day, weather permitting.
Potholes often form on roadways after a snowfall because moisture seeps below the asphalt, freezes and expands. When the snow thaws, it can leave behind a gap in the asphalt that collapses to form a hole.
