Pothole Repairs Underway in Central Ohio Suburbs
UPPER ARLINGTON (Jen French/Ken Hines) -- Amid a long-awaited break from the snow, workers are are making repairs to potholes on the streets of central Ohio suburbs, though cold temperatures are complicating their efforts.
Upper Arlington officials are among the city leaders investing in road repairs, spending approximately $3000 to smooth their streets -- nearly twice as much as last winter.
While the area has been spared significant snowfall throughout the week, temperatures that frequently dip below freezing have forced city workers to use only temporary cold mixes to fill in cracks until the weather is warm enough for a permanent solution.
Upper Arlington community relations spokesperson Emma Speight said this is one of the most severe winters she has seen.
"I would say this is up there -- as far as cold and the number of storms we've had come through, Speight said.
