Why is a recently filled pothole coming apart?
During the winter months, a temporary “cold patch” is used to fill potholes. This is a temporary measure until a more permanent solution, such as asphalt, can be used. Asphalt can only be poured when the weather is more than 50 degrees. When needed, town employees will fix potholes repaired with a “cold patch” once the temperature is above 50 degrees.
