The extreme changes in temperature plus the amount of rain throughout the last few weeks has taken a toll on Hudson’s roadways, and potholes have been popping up more often. Potholes can form in a matter of minutes due to the expansion and contraction of ground water caused by freezing and thawing. This movement causes pavement to weaken and crack.
Hudson’s Public Works Department responds to pothole reports as quickly as possible to patch them, but please pay attention to the roadways as you are driving this pothole season to ensure your safety and the safety of your vehicle. To report a pothole, you can use the Engage Hudson app on our website or via your cell phone. The app is available on iOS and Android. Or, call the Public Works Department at 330-342-1750.
