Triple 6, same as the one coming out of the airport just ahead of the turning lane to go South. Filled yesterday, same big pothole today. Are there some mitigating factors that the general public doesn't know about? One would think a pothole repair would last more than 24 hrs. Cant be very cost efficient! My 2c worth.

Bumped

I watched yesterday as a pothole was being filled, today that same pothole is back (totally empty).
Filling potholes in cold weather is total waste of money & resources, better off just filling them with sand & not asphalt.

Of course drivers bi :cuss: & complain, so maintenance crews goes & fills the holes.

And they should complain. Do you have any idea how much damage a pothole can cause on a vehicle?
Nobody wants to hear your opinion. They just want to hear their own opinion coming out of your mouth.
