Road Conditions: Rt 376 at Red Oaks Mill

These potholes have been growing despite the cold-patch:

A few days after I wrote that up, NYSDOT filled the potholes:

Now I can measure how long a filled pothole remains filled.

    We get a few potholes, but the ruts from studded snow tires get fixed every few years with continuous strips of hot asphalt. Seems to work, though the warm-weather types west of the Cascades hate the studs. They don’t have the persistent ice we can get, but I don’t think they care… Not much road-salt is used, except on the highway over the Cascades, so that help prevent potholes.

      continuous strips of hot asphalt

      They do that here, too, except that it’s rolled halfway across the shoulder to produce a vertical cliff that’ll flip your front wheel…
