Fewer Potholes This Year? Thank The Mild Winter

ANDOVER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Potholes are traditionally a sign of spring here in New England, but this year, we may get a break.

Thank the mild winter for that, Andover Highway Department Foreman Steven Serette tells WBZ NewsRadio's Karyn Regal.

"It actually shouldn't be that bad, seeing as we didn't have that much snow," he said. "The thawing and freezing wasn't as extensive as it usually is, so it should be hopefully a fairly decent season."

This does not mean fewer road crews, especially throughout the Merrimack Valley, where crews will be repairing and rebuilding roads damaged in the Columbia Gas disaster.
