JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Department of Transportation used about 350 tons of asphalt to fill more than 10,000 potholes in Mid-Missouri. 

Pothole Patrol, a department within MoDOT, filled the potholes between March 18 and April 15. But MoDOT's Central District Engineer, David Silvester, said the work is not finished.

"We wish we didn't have any potholes to fill," Silvester said, "but unfortunately they are a reality of routine roadway maintenance, especially on our older and more traveled highways."

 To report a pothole, contact MoDOT at1-888-ASK-MODOT or send an e-mail to comments@modot.mo.gov.
