NOW: Hit a pothole? Here’s how to report them to Waukesha Public Works

WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Much like the unpredictable forecast, spring is also synonymous with another pet peeve: potholes. 

Potholes pop up when water gets under the pavement and freezes, causing the road to expand and then thaw on mild spring days. 

Craters in the road can damage vehicles, everything from punctured tires to alignment issues. 

That's why local municipalities, like Waukesha, take a preventative approach. 

"We need to make sure we take preventative maintenance, and that we're sealing our roads, whether that's crack sealing, and if there's an area with a lot of potholes we get it on the schedule and make a plan to repave it," said Brian Knapp, streets division supervisor for Waukesha Public Works. 

People in Waukesha can report potholes online HERE. You can expect a response within three days.
