Paving season is officially underway in South Bend. The city’s Department of Public Works today released its list of projects for the year.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg said the city would like residents to be informed of when paving will take place, and besides releasing the scheduled work dates, they will also launch an interactive website in the next

  few days that will track work progress. Streets set to be paved include Ironwood Drive and Western Avenue.



This season’s weather has been particularly bad for potholes, and recent historic flooding has not helped road conditions.

This winter there has been a lot of freeze and thaw. This creates a lot of potholes, as anyone driving in Michiana has noticed.

Marty Morgan is the street commissioner for the City of Elkhart. He says besides ordinary potholes there have been streets ruined and potholes created by the recent flooding.
