How Potholes Form and How You Can Fix Them March 26, 2020
We’ve all experienced them – those dreaded, and sometimes unavoidable, potholes. But where do they even come from?
Potholes form due to the expansion and contraction of the ground, especially during the freeze and thaw cycles. Even though roads are built to avoid accumulations of water, the water still finds a way to seep into cracks in the ground. If it is cold enough, like during the winter months in Westchester, NY and surrounding areas, the water will freeze. This causes the water to turn to ice and expand, taking up more room under the pavement. In response, the pavement will expand and crack. Unfortunately, this will cause the material in the pavement to become weak.
After the ice has melted, the pavement will contract leaving space under the surface. If this process continues, the pavement will weaken and crack. As traffic passes over these areas of the pavement, the material will break due to the weight, creating a pothole.
