Last week, the Missouri Department of Transportation was focused on clearing the state’s roadways of snow and ice. And before the week was up, crews began working to repair potholes.
The department’s state maintenance director, Natalie Roark, said in a news release that the freezing temperatures combined with the snow and ice this month have caused lots of potholes to form on Missouri’s highways. Crews are working as hard as they can to fill potholes. She asked motorists to be patient.
