CHICAGO (CBS) — The wild temperature swings we’ve been seeing lately in the Chicago area have produced a bumper crop of potholes on the streets.
“We expect to see more potholes forming in the next couple of weeks,” Chicago Department of Transportation spokesman Pete Scales said.
WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports Scales said CDOT crews have been filling about 200 potholes a day.
Over the past couple weeks, CDOT crews have filled about 3,000 potholes, Scales said.
“Eighty percent of those were ones that our own crews spotted out on the street,” he said.
