With winter comes one of the most annoying things that can be found on the street: potholes. Like many other communities, Sharon has been dealing with repairing the damage brought on by the cracking and holes in the road.
“We’re spending a lot of time on that,” Sharon DPW Superintendent Eric Hooper said. “This has been terrible and it has to do with the freezing and thawing.”
According to Hooper, there is no area of town which is prone to potholes but they have been popping up everyone from odd places to main roads.
To repair the damage, the DPW has been applying a cold patches to temporarily fix the issue. When it is warmer and dry enough, a hot patch will be applied to repair the potholes.
