Road Patrol: Areas of Route 18 and Route 20 are being fixed by DOH


Crews with the Division of Highways have begun fixing heavily traveled roads. 

Potholes may not be a problem for some if they have time to slow down, but often times they cannot be avoided. 

A pothole on Route 20 was deep enough to stand in and has caused a few hubcaps to go missing. But if drivers look near the potholes, they may just find it.

A WBOY news car lost a hubcap on Route 20. We found it a few feet away, among other hubcaps. 

These potholes may soon be fixed. Division of Highway crews were out on their third day of work Thursday. Crews said that potholes cannot be fixed until asphalt plants open back up in the spring. 

Hot mix asphalt is put in the hole and once it is rolled over then drivers can drive on it.

Crews said that asphalt had already been laid on Route 18 and Route 20. Crews also said that three potholes can up to take four tons of asphalt to fix. 

But sometimes asphalt will not do the trick. 

Crews said they have to learn what’s going on underneath the road to truly fix it. 

The DOH will out fixing roads potholes on priority roads, and ask drivers to use caution and slow down when traveling through a work zone.
