Potholes Database Being Made in Buffalo To Manage Repairs
It's no secret that we have the WORST potholes around town. It's like being on the Predator at Darien Lake sometimes and once in a while it will pop your tires.

That new technology, which costs about $100,000, will keep is an asset management software who will be on a map and keep track of what treatments were used on what potholes. According to WGRZ, $450,000 is designated to road maintenance.

So that our crews aren't doing the same locations multiple times" said Commissioner of Public Works Michael Finn.
