NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – No matter how hot it gets, crews are hitting the roads to repair potholes across North Texas.

Ryan LaFontaine with Texas Department of Transportation says crews are prepared to do tough work, with the heat index well over 100-degrees. “Our guys are equipped with special cooling desks, we set up tents when we need to, and certainly they are mindful of how often they take a break for water and to cool down.”

Each time you bounce over… into… or out of a pothole, you’re probably thinking “this is the worst year for potholes ever.” But that’s not the case. LaFontaine says while drivers may be noticing particularly rough stretches of potholed riddled roads, streets and highways are in better condition than they were this time last year, because of the very mild winter in North Texas.

Crews are weathering the heat to catch up on road repairs now, but LaFontaine says workers do the same thing no matter the weather conditions. “Potholes are certainly a year round effort. We have several thousand lane miles worth of road here in the Dallas District — so we are constantly repairing potholes.”

There seems to already be more than enough work to keep road crews busy, but drivers can still log on to the Texas Department of Transportation website to report potholes — or as listed on the webpage “pavement conditions.”
