Potholes in Boston

New England traffic has long negotiated the effects of our repetitive freeze-thaw cycle that leaves roads a gantlet of potholes. That same cycle bursts water lines beneath roads, forming sinkholes to menace traffic as well. A torturous winter season always has the ability to make Boston’s roads as much an obstacle course as they are transportation infrastructure. - Lane Turner and Lisa Tuite
