Pothole repairs underway

The business of transportation is getting a little tough on vehicles as many U–P roads are riddled with potholes.

Potholes have been showing up on city streets and highways a little more than usual recently.

The Marquette County Road Commission has been facing some issues with previously patched holes due to the wet weather.

As one of the top priorities for spring, the road commission sends patch crews out on the roads daily to deal with pothole problems.

And, officials say you can call them to report potholes so they know where pothole problems exist.

On an average year, the Marquette County Road Commission uses about 1,000 tons of coal patch to fill the potholes in the county.
