San Bernardino scrambles to repair potholes

San Bernardino has repaired more than 3,000 potholes that were caused by the storms that drenched Southern California earlier this month.

The city’s Public Works Department has deployed six to eight crews every day to repair nearly 14,000 square feet of damaged roads, with some crews working morning and evening shifts, according to a statement on the city website.

One hundred and fifty-two tons of material has been used, and about 100 potholes remain to be fixed. The work is expected to be completed in two weeks.

Potholes, which vary in size and depth, are caused by heavy rain. They happen when the top layer of pavement and the material beneath it – called the base or sub-base -cannot support vehicle weight.
