Report a Potholehttps://intranet.burkenc.org/WebsiteContent/Lists/Home Page News/DispForm.aspx?ID=207Report a Pothole<p>​Because of last December's winter storm, potholes are appearing earlier than normal across the state. They are caused by water seeping into cracks in the road and ice forming. Those cracks widen, causing the asphalt to rise while traffic loosens the pavement eventually creating a hole in the road. Maintenance crews in Division 13 will make additional permanent pothole repairs once warmer weather patterns exist.<br><br>You can help expedite repairs by letting us know where potholes are located by visiting NCDOT's website. </p>
