Gov. Pence makes pothole pledge in Gary
February 7, 2014 — The state’s top leader vows to tackle Indiana’s pressing pothole problem.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence says Hoosier drivers are dodging a record number of potholes on area roads.
The governor stopped by the Traffic Management Center in Gary to announce statewide plans to repair state roadways.
In a new endeavor he calls a “potole blitz” Governor Pence says Indiana Department of Transportation crews will work alternating twelve hour shifts to cover chuckholes.
The state has spent $2.9 million filling potholes this fiscal year and officials expect the next wave of repairs to be covered by the INDOT’s winter operations budget.
