VIDEO: Watch Potholes in Lakewood Being ‘Cold Patched’

county filling potholes(VIDEO – Time-Lapsed) : Ocean County road crews were in Lakewood today filling the potholes on Lakewood’s County roads.

As earlier reported, during the Winter months, potholes are filled with ‘cold patches’ – a temporary patch.

The video shows the pothole filled with tar, and then smoothened out – by the truck driving over it.

As you can imagine, the fill doesn’t usually last too long.

    if you drive with due caution AND pay attention to where your going to you can avoid lots of these pot holes. SLOW down people and give he people who are working on the roads a fair chance.
