GCRC preparing for spike in potholes

FLINT — Warmer temperatures are coming to Michigan, and with them, the arrival of pesky potholes. Potholes are formed when water in the pavement thaws, then freezes, which expands the pavement and makes it more susceptible to damage.

Genesee County Road Commission maintenance crews are out on the roads repairing potholes with the hot patch, a temporary fix to level out the road. Potholes are an unfortunate reality in the state of Michigan, and with frost coming out of the ground, they are popping up more and more each day.

GCRC crews are making every effort to prioritize the fixes to the more hazardous holes first.

Motorist safety is a top priority for GCRC, and they are always keeping that in mind as they deal with the challenges that come with springtime.

The GCRC spends an average of $1,500 per lane-mile per year filling potholes.

To report a pothole, call 810-767-4920 or fill out a form at — G.G.
