The Entire Life Cycle of a Pothole, Explained in 100 Seconds

A new video from Arlington County explains the entire life cycle of a pothole in less than 2 minutes.

In the video, county engineer Dave Hundelt talks about how potholes form, how residents can report them online (hint: use this form) and how road crews can patch a pothole in 20 minutes flat.

Expect the pothole crews to be out in force later this week, when temperatures are expected to rise well north of the 50 degree mark needed for more permanent repairs.
