The asphalt plants were supposed to open last week, but Danbury Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola says many delayed opening until this week because of the rain. Four crews had been at work in Danbury filling potholes during the off-season with Cold Patch, but Iadarola says that will be ramped up.
Danbury officials are asking resident to continue reporting potholes to the City’s 311 Information Line. Motorists are being cautioned that when driving over a puddle of water, it might be a particularly deep pothole in hiding.
If you brake directly over a pothole, it can actually cause more damage than if you're able to slow down before getting to the pothole. The potholes are prioritized on the busiest roads and then crews continue down the list.
