SC DOT reports they fixed more than 5,000 potholes on Upstate roads in 2013.  They are expecting that number to rise due to the extreme cold the Upstate has seen.

Potholes form after extreme cold on roads that then thaws out. They can cause extreme damage to vehicles.

The city of Greenville also patched a large amount of potholes in 2013, just over 800.

Agencies are asking for the public to be their eyes and ears for pothole repairs, as they can't find them all.
