PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Public works officials in Maine say potholes are a continuing problem and changing temperatures are only going to make them worse.

WGME-TV reports there have been 84 reported pothole complaints in Portland, nine of which are still an issue as of January 19. Portland Public Works Director Chris Branch says his crews are doing their best to keep up, but there are a lot of potholes out on the roads.

Changing temperatures in Maine is causing water to seep below the road surface during warming temperatures, only for the water to freeze and expand - thus cracking the pavement during cold snaps.
