Doing better with potholes
Fixing them more permanently
It’s more than a nuisance; it’s a safety hazard and slows down traffic. Road maintenance and pothole repairs are an ongoing and never ending responsibility. I believe more funds need to be devoted to repaving projects and pothole repairs, which needs to be done in a more expedited manner. We can also apply new methods to old problems in an effort to extend the life of our roadways. Slurry Seal is a technology that spreads a thin coating of tar and fine sand-based material that is spread over roads in the early stages of deterioration. It can add as much as five years to the life of a road.
