Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) —The Tennessee Department of Transportation said crew members are working hard to deal with the influx of potholes into major highways following last week’s storm.
“It’s like playing down the freeway and not hitting a logger,” said Justin Boyer. “See it every time such a storm occurs, it’s pretty common.”
On weekends, cars punctured in a collision with the same problem area lined up by the side of the road. Terence Morris wanted to avoid this problem by filling all four with air on Monday night.
“I don’t want pop tires, so I’ll tell you that much. That’s terrible,” Morris said.
TDOT tells News2 that temporary cold mix patches have been placed in the most stressful potholes before the permanent fix is installed later this spring. The crew plans to work along all major highways, I-24, I-40, and I-65, over the next few weeks.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re driving a truck or car, or what you’re driving. I don’t want to hit a hole at 70mph. It’s not good for what you’re driving, so pay a little more attention. You need to be careful, “Boyer said.
