Snow prompts pause in pothole patching

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — The large amount of snow we’ve seen this winter has caused potholes to pop up all around Southern New England, and on Monday it forced crews to put a hold on fixing them.

A spokesperson for the city of Pawtucket said workers were busy plowing snow in the morning, and as the day went on – the potholes were filled with water.

Many cities and towns are having to use temporary patches to fill the potholes because it’s too cold outside for hot asphalt to be used.

Pawtucket’s Department of Public Works is seeking the public’s help in tracking potholes. Residents can call (401) 728-0500 ext. 284 to report a pothole in the city.
