Motorists asked to report buckling pavement caused by the heat
State transportation officials say the risk of pavement buckling will continue to be high at least through Friday.
Authorities said the 100-degree heat caused buckling Thursday on Interstate 39 in Columbia County, Highway 12 near Wisconsin Dells, and on a city street in West Bend.
The state Department of Transportation said there were 17 cases of pavement buckling on the Fourth of July. It took an average of two to three hours to repair each spot.
