Sinclaire Sparkman: Potholes, potholes everywhere
That’s all well and good, but shouldn’t road crews be equipped to fix the potholes to keep us from driving like drunkards just to save our tires and alignments? Yes, TDOT is hard at work fixing potholes early in the year, but we keep getting potholes because the best patch mixture, a hot asphalt mix, isn’t available until the weather warms up. Asphalt plants are closed during winter months, so crews compensate with a cold mix to patch the roads, which doesn’t stick to the road as well during cold wet conditions and just isn’t as durable as the hot mix.
