The potholes you see popping up across Eastern Carolina may be a little harder to fix this year because of tight budgets.
In Onslow County, Department of Transportation officials say the potholes are showing up everywhere.
For drivers, the concrete craters can cause thousands of dollars in damage, but the DOT says repairs to the road area harder to fix due to budgetary shortfalls. Workers say they're doing all they can on a tight budget.
Even some auto shops say they've bee busy repairing several vehicles due to suspension damage from the potholes.
