Crews fixing potholes during break from winter weather

Posted: Updated:

On Thursday, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and City Engineer Pat Keepes will host the first of three public road project meetings that will focus on improvements, paving projects and pothole repairs.

Thursday's meeting will take place from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the C.K. Newsome Center.
The February 26 meeting is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Plaza Park International Academy.
On March 3, the meeting is from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Stringtown Branch Library.  

In Kentucky, transportation crews are using the current break from snow and ice duty to fix potholes.

"During the winter season, pavement takes a lot of punishment," said Nancy Albright, Deputy State Highway Engineer for Project Delivery and Preservation.

Crews will be out patching potholes every day the weather permits. While highway crews are out fixing roads, the public is asked to help crews do their job by doing two things:

  • Being attentive and patient to those working
  • Reporting potholes along state routes

Motorists can report potholes in Kentucky by calling 1-877-FOR-KYTC or by going online to http://transportation.ky.gov/Pages/Report-a-Pothole.aspx.
