SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - With rain and warmer temperatures after the recent cold spell, officials say the weather is perfect to develop potholes. Director of Scott County Road and Maintenance, J.R. Brandenburg, says they commonly see the holes forming when rain and warm weather moves into the area.
"We'll be out on the roads next week looking and filling any potholes that develop," says Brandenburg. "We go from 50's to rain, the water gets down in the crevices and cracks of the asphalt. When it freezes, it pushes it apart, cars running over it, potholes will develop."
Brandenburg expects his crews to fill at least a dozen or more potholes in the coming week.
