But the recent weather has been near perfect for pothole creation.
"We probably had the worst type of rain-freeze-thaw cycle that you could possibly have for asphalt," said Hanson.
Hanson says the Stateline is at the dawn of pothole season and it's only going to get worse.
"There's probably one being born right now," said Hanson.
He thinks the next thaw cycle will allow even more water to get into the asphalt then freeze overnight, "and it's going to start breaking up and it's going to just multiply many potholes," said Hanson.

"When we're driving it's so dangerous because they are
blowing out tires," said
Some people say patching the problem now is just a waste of money since we're likely to hit get again with another round of cold and snow before the winter is over.
"It Doesn't make sense to pour, lay down asphalt, blacktop,
then you're going to tear it right up with snow trucks," said
"If it's not snowing out and we're not plowing snow, we'll be filling potholes," said Hanson.
