LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The cold and freezing temperatures have created numerous potholes throughout Metro Louisville.
The Public Works Department was repairing several potholes on Preston Highway and Mt. Washington Road Monday afternoon.
Public Works officials say the department performs these repairs year-round.
"During the winter time, we respond to potholes that have been reported to us, but however in the spring early spring, we do what's called a 'pothole blitz' and we basically take a map and march down every street and patch everything in sight," said Metro Public Works spokesperson Harold Williams.
Crews repair potholes during normal shifts, so government officials do not anticipate overtime costs. But the city could spend more money on supplies if there are more potholes this year.
