Pot holes are a serious issue for drivers, but VDOT is helping to minimize the problem.
Pot holes are created when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes and then thaws. VDOT is focusing on fixing them from the end of February to the beginning of March, meaning that now is prime time for repairing them.
"Right now we've probably covered almost a hundred percent of the potholes- the only ones that may not have been covered, are ones that have appeared within the last day or so. So, we're out there everyday, doing pothole repair," says Sandy Myers public relations manager at VDOT.
If you come across an unattended pot hole that needs attention, you may call your local VDOT branch or fill out the online form at VADOT.org
