TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – It’s pothole season in New Jersey, as state transportation department crews have launched their annual push to fill the holes that show up in roads across the state each spring.
State Department of Transportation Assistant Commissioner Richard Shaw said they expect to fill just over 200,000 potholes this season running until the beginning of June.
“They can become small craters. We try to get to them before they get to that point,” Shaw told WCBS 880’s Levon Putney.
DOT workers fill potholes year-round, but spring is the time when many potholes form due to temperature fluctuations above and below the freezing mark.
