Cincinnati is gearing up for a major blitz in about two weeks to fix the growing number of potholes in the city.
Traffic and road operation superintendent Jarrod Bolden says all resources from public works will be focused on the issue starting March 3rd. He spoke to a city council committee Wednesday.
This week's spring-like temperatures might provide some reprieve from the winter doldrums, but they're likely to cause headaches for drivers.
Ohio Department of Transportation spokeswoman Sharon Smigielski says conditions are ripe for creating potholes.
"The warmer temperatures accelerate the freeze/thaw cycle causing pavement to deteriorate more quickly," she says.
Since it's still too cold for permanent fixes, road crews will use a cold patch mixture to plug potholes.
