Although winter is officially over, drivers can still feel the impact on area roads, right through their car's suspension.

Potholes are everywhere.   TDOT crews have been working six days a week all winter to put temporary patches in the pits.

They have 1400 lane miles of roadway to maintain just in Knox County.  They say with the arrival of spring the roads will get better.

"As the weather gets warmer and those asphalt plants open up that's when you'll see the opportunity to have more permanent patching on our state roadways so as we get into April you'll see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel," said TDOT Spokesperson Mark Nagi.

If you have a particular state roadway where you have to dodge potholes, contact TDOT.  It will send crews to check it out and add it to their list.
