How citizens of Brandon can deal with the dangers of potholes during this time of year.
With most of the snow melted, it may seem like our roads and streets are completely safe for driving. But as it turns out, that’s not always the case; especially at this time of year. Potholes usually form in the spring season because of the melted snow, which then causes water to seep into cracks in the pavement. When temperatures drop below 0 degrees, water freezes which can push the pavement out of place, creating a pothole. Potholes are most likely to form in area with poor drainage and lots of heavy traffic. More information on how potholes are formed can be found on the City of Brandon’s Website
