[ARCHIVED] Transportation crews work to fill potholes

Employees of the City of Midland's Transportation Division continue to fill potholes in the midst of the city's recent wet and wintry weather.

The City of Midland maintains approximately 625 linear miles of paved road within the city limits. Recent weather conditions such as sleet, snow and rain can seep below the pavement and cause the asphalt to deteriorate as traffic moves across it.

Several employees of the Transportation Division participated in cleanup efforts related to fallen tree limbs in roadways, but are beginning to return to filling potholes full-time. Last week, the City's street and alley asphalt crew repaired 138 potholes in addition to maintaining debris piles at local tree limb drop-off sites.

Several methods are used in various conditions to patch asphalt across town, including hot mix, Instant Road Repair stored in a bucket, a Dura Patcher and a Python Patcher. Potholes are not able to be repaired in inclement weather that could compromise the new asphalt.

Citizens are encouraged to call the City's pothole hotline at 432-685-7293 from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on Monday-Friday or visit to "Report a Concern" when they see a pothole on a City of Midland street.
