Thanks Mother Nature! ENC Dealing With Potholes After Storm

While the snow and ice may have melt away, what's surfaced behind them are huge potholes on our roadways.

In Pitt County crews are covering hundreds of miles of roadways to fill what mother nature has produced.

The opening in the asphalt is being covered with a rock-tar mixture instead of asphalt, called cold mix.

For those who travel down Moye-Turnage Road near Farmville, they say it's been very dangerous on the road lately.

The DOT in Greenville says they've used 12 to 15 tons of the cold mix Thursday and say with the rain Friday, it could cause more potholes to form.

    Road edges are just as bad. Instead of adding a shoulder when repaving to fix the problem; DOT says repair it. It creates job security for them.

    I know construction is on-going on Reade Circle here in Greenville, but couldn't the city patch all the potholes in the driveable lane there? It has been months since they have been showing up and they get worse every day.

    All of our roads should be made of concrete, just like how portions of our interstates are made of.

    That's what happens when you put that stuff on dry roads before it snows. It doesn't take brains to figure out this would happen.
