City Manager Eric King says while they are talking about major traffic improvements in Bend at a special workshop tonight; that doesn't mean the City won't also take care of the regular maintenance that potholes require. Eric King was a guest on KBND's “Your Town” this morning. He says the City gets a lot of citizen feedback on the problem of potholes: “This is the time of year when we get, with the freezing and thawing that we're going to get the potholes.  Especially with the roundabouts in tow, where you have a lot of turning movements,  you have a lot of pressure. I think we've learned some things as we've designed those roundabouts: that we might look at using a different material that just a little more durable than standard asphalt to be able to minimize the amount of potholes with roundabouts."  When potholes come up its hard to get out right away to fix the potholes because the asphalt plants close down for the winter. He says they can probably tackle it in April.
