Drivers maneuver around potholes

Posted: Updated:

It was a problem last month when our area went through a freeze and thaw cycle. Potholes are popping up again and crews are starting to hit the streets.

City leaders say complaints started coming in Thursday. They say the material city workers are using to fill the potholes makes the procedure a quick fix

It's nothing new. When the sun comes out and the snow melts, out comes the potholes. Drivers across our area are trying to maneuver around them. You can usually find at least one or two on every street or highway.

"Oh yeah, they are pretty bad, especially on 75. They're horrible," says Daryl Caswell.  

"I can't believe up sylvania. Its pot holes deep pot holes. Especially when you get to where the lane breaks down just to a two lane. You can't really swerve around with all snow. You think snow filled it up and now its melting a little bit and you hit them hard," says Bernice Neal.

"The Anthony Wayne Trail is atrocious with all the pot holes," says Jason DeYung.

City workers were out filling numerous potholes on the Anthony Wayne Trail. City leaders say lookout for the potholes. Some are large enough to fit a tire in them. Many drivers are trying to avoid the deep cavities. Huge holes that can cause a lot of damage to your car.

"Pretty much a thump to a bing to a bounce just depends on the hole you get off on the side streets they are pretty bad where they plowed too," says Caswell.  

"I got a big truck and it still takes a toll on it. I'm glad that I have a 4 wheel drive vehicle its outrageous out here right now," says Deyung.

You can report any potholes to 419-936-BUMP (2867).
