Pothole Numbers Down in Vincennes

Vincennes Mayor Joe Yochum believes better City street maintenance has kept down pothole numbers in Vincennes this season. Even with ideal conditions for road cracking, City streets have fared well against potholes.
However, Mayor Yochum gives advice on what to do if potholes do develop in Vincennes…

The holes are patched with what is called “cold mix” asphalt. Mayor Yochum says warmer weather is needed before permanent “hot mix” asphalt patches can be made…

Hot mix asphalt comes after the asphalt plants open for the spring. The material is placed on the roads after temperatures consistently rise into the 50’s or above.
