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.

  1. 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.

      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…
