The potholes on Cheyenne's roads and streets are a growing problem and drivers in Cheyenne are fed up.
East Pershing Boulevard is one street covered in them. Chinna Rogan hit one on Monday. "I knew they were there. I tried to avoid them... I hit a small one and now my spare tire is ruined" she said. She was using her spare tire because the original was also popped by a pothole.
Rogan and dozens of other frustrated drivers contacted NewsChannel 5 on Facebook, all of them wanting answers from the City.
"I know they are growing in our community" said Mayor Rick Kaysen. He insists the City uses top-notch asphalt. The problem comes when it freezes and thaws.
After this last bout of winter weather, crews are doing their best to patch up the potholes. "A pothole patch is like a band-aid over a wound. It's a temporary fix until that road may be totally reconstructed or have an overlay of asphalt" said Mayor Kaysen.
Rogan needs a band-aid for her tire but that's easier said than done. "I just can't afford it so this is where we're at right now" she said. Her car is parked near East Pershing. It's another casualty of Cheyenne's potholes.
To report a pothole call the Department of Public Works at (307) 637-6288.
