BEND, OR -- Pot holes seem worse this year in Bend because more moisture and extreme temperature swings are wreaking havoc on the roads. “This year has been a little bit wetter. 40-degrees during the day and freezing temperatures in the evening. But then with stormy weather and the moisture it’s been a tough year for the pot holes,” Bend Streets Director David Abbas tells KBND News.

 

He says, “Our crews have been out on 14th street, one of the bad areas for us. Colorado Roundabout and different areas in town. So we’re out there this week trying to do a more long term fix on those.” That long term fix means using a hot asphalt mix, rather than a temporary cold mix. 

 

This temporary warm spell is allowing the hot to be used before mother nature once again gives us the cold shoulder.
