It was a bad winter for potholes
Tom Zeuli, director of the Hudson Public Works and Parks Department, confirmed last week what most motorists already know. It was a bad winter for potholes.
Zeuli was able to shed some light on what made the potholes multiply.
"A lot of moisture" was to blame, he said. "When that moisture gets into cracks it freezes and expands. That's what develops the potholes."
The trouble started with a December rainstorm, followed by big snowstorms.
