VDOT Commissioner Charlie Kilpatrick on Friday thanked motorists and others who have reported potholes caused by the unusually harsh winter.
The transportation department conducts pothole repairs on state-maintained roads year-round and says it will continue to address these roadway hazards. Repairs are prioritized based on severity and location.
