LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The winter is not only cold weather season, it's pothole season. They're worse when freezing precipitation expands as ice in road crevices, causing those cracks to grow bigger, and creating more problems for drivers.
Louisville Metro Public Works crews patch potholes nightly and Wednesday night, state crews with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet did some temporary cold mix fixes on I-64 in Shelby County. The cold mix is temporary until asphalt plants reopen in warmer weather, providing fuel for a more permanent solution.
City workers already use that hot mix and say they strive to fill in holes within 48 hours of a complaint being filed. But you have to file one, or else they may not get fixed.
Statewide, you can call 1-800-PATCH-IT and if you're in Louisville you can dial MetroCall's number 3-1-1 or to the city of Louisville's website http://www.louisvilleky.gov/. You can also download the city's mobile app, allowing you to take pictures of potholes on your phone and file a complaint.
