Potholes are not only an annoyance but can also be a potentials danger to drivers, their vehicles, and pedestrian's safety.
Potholes begin to form after snow or rain seeps through untreated cracks and into the soil below the surface layer of the asphalt.
When water freezes and ice forms below the surface (sub-grade layer) the ground expands and pushes the pavement up.
As temperatures rise, the ground returns to a normal level but the pavement often remains raised. This creates a gap between the pavement and the ground below it.
When vehicles drive over the pavement, the weight of the traffic causes the pavement surface to crack and fall into the hollow space, creating a pothole.
It’s important to perform maintenance and repair potholes as soon as they appear.
