Potholes are caused by weak soil structure due to increased moisture. When traffic repeatedly passes over the affected area the street cracks and a pothole begins to form.
According to a Proctor Automotive employee, potholes can cause extensive damage to your vehicle, such as flat tires, bent rims, and structural damage.
To report street cracking or potholes, call Abilene Street Services at 325-676-6045.
