We usually don’t see them or think about them until Spring time.
But with temperatures going from minus 30 to above zero in Regina this week, pot-holes may be noticeable .
Norm Kyle, the Director of Roadways with the city says temperatures going from above zero during the day to below freezing at night is the main contributor of pot-holes.
Kyle says it depends how extreme temperature changes are and where the frost line is that will determine how quickly pot-holes will form on city streets.
He says the city always has cold mix to go out and fill pot-holes anytime of year, adding in the spring they go out and do more permanent patching work.
