Roadway Blowups Across The Area

modotWith temperatures nearing 100 degrees during the early part of this week, motorists should be aware that the extreme heat can cause what’s known as “blow ups” on Lake area highways. MODOT area engineer Bob Lynch says a pavement blow-up occurs when the roadway surface expands at a crack or joint where moisture has seeped in.

MODOT says it’s difficult to know where or when a pavement blow-up will happen, however crews will be out looking for them and will make the needed repairs if they occur.
