Recent weather causing pothole problem in Toledo

Posted: Updated:

If you've driven around Toledo, you may have noticed quite a few potholes. They've been popping up all over the city, especially after this month's freeze and thaw cycle. That's when the water from melting snow and ice seeps into the pavement and then refreezes and expands during cold spells. That breaks up roads at and below the surface. As vehicles continue to pass over the weakened spot, pieces of roadway are kicked out, creating those nasty potholes.

Now, snow plows are getting a break and crews are doing patch work on the pavement. Crews with the City of Toledo Division of Streets, Bridges, and Harbor are trying to make your drive smoother. The Ohio Department of Transportation is also on the lookout for potholes. An ODOT spokesperson said that the "On" and "Off" ramps along I-75 are particularly large problem spots.

If there's a pothole you'd like to report to the Toledo Division of Streets, Bridges, and Harbor call (419) 245-1526.
