Now that it's officially spring, UDOT crews are trying to deal with potholes that developed on Utah roads during the winter.

A harsh winter took a toll on state roads. Moisture turned to ice, which then thawed and cracked the pavement, leaving behind holes six to eight inches deep.

UDOT crews fix about 20 to 30 potholes a week. They do most of the repairs during the evening hours, and they are constantly monitoring the roads.

Crews are asking residents to report potholes that haven't been fixed. Click here for UDOT's website.
