When will the potholes be fixed?
Like most towns in the State, Nantucket has a spring pothole repair program because of the beating that the roads take during the winter. This is part of DPW’s regular seasonal maintenance program. Roadways cannot be permanently fixed in the middle of winter because asphalt cannot be placed unless the temperature is 45°F and rising and the pothole is clear of any standing water and debris. As a result, the most effective pothole repair programs start when we can be certain that temperatures will consistently stay above 45°F so that we can head out and patch non-stop. All of this is obviously weather dependent!
