Pot holes could soon appear on Quincy streets
QUINCY, IL —
The spring time is typically when you see portions of the road surface start to deteriorate.
But with the flux in temperatures, John Schafer with Quincy Central Services says due to subzero temperatures last week and well above freezing temperatures this week, pot holes are likely to form.
"You know just the freezing and the thawing. You get a little bit of a crack in the pavement somewhere, water gets in there and freezes and it's gonna expand and bust it out so you know it’s just something that naturally happens,” says Schafer.
Schafer says the temperature has to be right above freezing in order for the patches to seal properly.
He says if you travel or live on a street that needs pot holes filled, call the Quincy City Hall or Central Services to let them know.
