Columbus Begins Pothole Repair after Cold Snap
COLUMBUS (Jen French/Kate Liebers) -- Drivers have been running into pothole problems now that the ice is thawing.
"Just in the recent weeks (there have been) a lot of potholes because of the swing in temperatures from extremely cold to the 30s and 40s," said Rick Tilton of the Department of Public Service.
Crews have been filling in the gaps this week.
"When we're not plowing streets, they're fixing potholes," Tilton said. "And we fix potholes year-round."
After last year's mild winter, Columbus spent nearly $300,000 to fix potholes.
The city has not yet released an estimate for this winter's pothole costs.
