Temps above freezing have caused snow to melt and
large puddles to form.
Crews were around town today clearing catch basins
of ice and snow to get standing water off the street.
They also had several pot holes to fill.
Kyle Dimke joins us with more on what road crews are
doing during this warm up.
when the temperatures keep going from below freezing.
to above freezing.
and back below.
it causes a huge strain on the roads.
Thats when pot holes form and melting snow causes
extra icy roads.
But crews in the area are trying to combat those problems.
La Crosse County officals are ready for spring.
But say this winter isn't much different then years
JC 1- No it's about the same, we're still seeing frost
heavs in spots.We're just pluggin away with patching
whenever we can get out there.
Pot holes are nothing new for this time of year.
JC 2- They come up every year and it's just a weak
spot in the road eats out traffic beatting on it and
water sitting on it and then we just go in and try
and clean them up as best we can
And patching pot holes hasn't been easy to do this
JC 1- with all of the snow that we've had we really
haven't had a whole lot of time to do a ton of patching
