The state Department of Transportation’s annual battle against potholes is starting on state highways with a campaign of aggressive pothole filling. What this means for drivers, besides having door rattling potholes repaired, is that they could encounter closed lanes on state highways, typically between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. While crews will avoid working on highways carrying traffic in the peak direction during rush hour, motorists could encounter repair crews at any time of the day or night during this campaign if emergency repairs have to be made, said Stephen Schapiro, a DOT spokesman, in a release.
