The Chicago Department of Transportation has already repaired more than 56,000 potholes this year. That’s a lot of potholes. The mild weather has allowed an average of 15 pothole crews to be out repairing the damage caused by midwinter’s cycle of freezing and thawing, which allows water to trickle into cracks and tiny spaces that later freeze and expand, leading to potholes that frustrate and annoy drivers everywhere. Roesch Ford near Chicago, IL would like to remind you of two things – first, that you can be part of the solution to pothole damage by letting the city know where work is needed, and second, that we are here to help if your vehicle has suffered from pothole damage.
