First it was ice, then snow and now its potholes, drivers on the interstate, are dealing with.

Dan McCourt says he's had to replace a few rims after hitting deep potholes. Richard Sanders says he's on the interstate and is tired of seeing them, everyday.

Robin Jenkins with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says freeze thaw cycles have created pothole season. She says crews are busy repairing them but need drivers to help, by reporting them.

Jenkins estimates about ten million dollars are spent repairing potholes, every year.

Drivers can report potholes by calling 1-800-PATCHIT (1-800-728-2448).
