MADISON, Wis. - Madison potholes will become more prevalent as the weather warms up, and the city is already racing to fill more than 15,000 of them.

The cold and the rain put stress on the roads, causing potholes to pop up all over the city.

George Dreckmann with the Madison Streets Division said the year’s winter will make the season longer, but that doesn’t necessarily mean more potholes.

“Because the frost went so deep this year, the thawing is going to take a little bit longer and that means the pothole season is going to spread out, but it’s not going to be quite as severe,” Dreckmann said.

The city will temporarily fill potholes and then finish with something more permanent in the summer. They said they’ll try to fill them within 24 hours of being reported.

City: Pothold season longer, not as severe Thursday, March 27 2014, 09:54 PM CDT
