INDOT using more money to fill state's pothole


Potholes galore, they're breaking off a bigger piece of the state department of transportation's budget.

In the fiscal year through the first of February, INDOT has used $3.1 million dollars to fill potholes on state roads. On average, about 2.6 million is spent per year.

Matt Dietchley with INDOT says they're not worried about the higher costs just yet.

"There's not a concern that we're going to run out of winter money," he says. "There's a yearly maintanance budget. We can utilize as we need to."

As for the materials used to patch those potholes, 7,200 tons of patching material has been used statewide so far. The yearly average is about 6,200 tons.
