DOT has game plan for filling the potholes

April 8, 2014

Patching the potholes on state-maintained roads and highways across Oconee County is a year-round job. But that job escalates when warmer weather allows DOT maintenance crews to mix tar and asphalt. A patching crew from the DOT district is due to arrive in the next couple of weeks to fill what Mike Smith calls “some real bad places” in Mountain Rest, on the Chattooga Ridge and Cassidy Bridge roads. Wherever there’s a pothole crying out for attention, you can help by notifying the DOT resident maintenance office at 647-0798 or by going to scdot.org. 96.3/WGOG NEWS has heard a lot of complaints about the severity of the winter that officially ended a couple of weeks ago. But Smith, the resident maintenance engineer for the DOT, says the winter weather could have been a lot worse on the condition of the roads than it actually was.
