Warmer temperatures signal pothole season for NH

MANCHESTER - Spring hasn't officially arrived yet, but as New Hampshire drivers know, the big thaw also means it's pothole season.

Manchester's Department of Public Works has already been flooded with reports on their pothole tracker site.

Mechanics say it's still early but business has been booming with drivers who attempted to take potholes head on.

"Even if you're going 30 mph, potholes can do so much damage to your car. Now if you see the Grand Canyon in front of you while you're driving, yeah, I'd avoid it like the Black Plague," said Nicholas Hamel, a Manchester mechanic.

Public Works also encourages Queen City drivers to call their hotline at 624-6444. With this year's harsh winter, Public Works knows it will be a long spring full of repairs.
