MDOT explains why pothole patches don’t work better [Video]
After a harsh winter Michigan’s roads remain full of potholes.
Repair crews are working to fill the potholes, but the fixes don’t last.
Drivers get frustrated with potholes and many wish workers would do a better job fixing them.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says the patches are just a temporary solution and more money is needed. They say patches fill holes but “it’s not a true repair.”
MDOT also says “an aging road system and a history of underinvestment” are among the problems.
The video goes further into Michigan’s pothole problem and again says money is needed.
Potholes are getting political.
A combination of funds and improved technology would be ideal.
