FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): You’ve seen – and felt – them all over Fort Wayne.

Potholes, created by the wild swings in temperature we’ve seen lately. Fort Wayne Public Works spokesman Frank Suarez tells our Partners in News at ABC 21 street crews are patching them as fast as possible.

“It’s typical that we start getting a lot of calls in January,” Suarez says. “We had 61 calls last week but we (also) filled about 500 potholes just last week.”

There are eight full-time crews on the city’s payroll focusing exclusively on potholes, and they’re currently working 24 hours a day.

The road craters can cause flat tires, bent rims, and other car problems if you hit them too often, or if you just hit a big one just right.
