WHITE PLAINS - Department of Public Works crews were out in White Plains today continuing repairs on potholes in the area.

Experts say that the repeated freezing and thawing breaks up the pavement, leaving gaping craters in the road.

White Plains DPW Commissioner Bud Nicoletti told News 12 that the department tries to prevent potholes by sealing cracks in the fall, but the freezing and thawing in the past few weeks has made it very difficult.

"The frost goes down a foot or so and we get a good hard frost and it breaks up the road and there's really not much we can do but be reactive," he says.

DPW crews are also out in Yonkers trying to fill the potholes in as fast as they can.
