ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Now that the worst of winter is apparently over, the Missouri Department of Transportation is enlisting the help of motorists in the effort to fill potholes on state-maintained roadways.
MoDOT officials say the goal is to fill potholes as quickly as possible once they are reported. Maintenance workers will use asphalt for a temporary fix until permanent repairs can be made.
This winter has been especially hard on roads, with rising-and-falling temperatures and a lot of snow and freezing rain that required massive amounts of road salt.
Drivers reporting potholes can call 888-275-6636, or go to MoDOT's website or social media platforms.
