Potholes, Flooding Among Leftover Remnants Of Recent Winter Storm


Snow and ice are no longer a problem on local roadways… but one residual effect of the recent severe winter weather could pose a different hazard. 

 

Potholes… sometimes big potholes… are opening up on Springfield streets, apparently the result of last week’s frigid temperatures and the warmup that followed.  Those potholes will be added to a long to-do list for a public works department that is already over-budget because of the snow cleanup.

 

Additionally, some parts of the state are at an increased risk of flooding because of the rapidly-melting snow and ice, along with heavy weekend rains.

 

One bit of good news: almost all Amtrak service in Illinois has been fully restored… a week after the heavy snow and record cold temperatures that descended on the state.  Multiple Amtrak routes were cancelled over the past week because of track conditions and decreased travel demands.
