Pothole season is upon us, and already the city of North Battleford is beginning efforts to combat the potentially hazardous nuisance.

With warmer temperatures recently, more and more potholes are being exposed, which can potentially damage a vehicle. City Communications Director Suzanne Abe explained, while it is warm enough for city crews to go out and fill in holes, they aren’t making any permanent fixes.

“We use a winter cold mix asphalt, so that’s a material to smooth out the potholes, it’s packed into the potholes, but unfortunately it’s not a permanent thing," she said. 

Abe said until warm and dry summer conditions are here to stay, they won’t be able to go out with hot mix and do more permanent fixes. In the meantime, if you see a major pothole that could potentially cause damage to a vehicle, you can call the city and they will send a crew out to survey the hole.

The city can be reached at 306-445-1700.
