DOT Warns of Danger of Buckling Pavement
With the increasing temperatures comes an increased chance of pavement buckling occurring on Wisconsin roadways. The state’s DOT is asking drivers to be on the lookout for these problem areas, which occur when concrete slabs expand in hot weather and push against one another. It’s difficult to know exactly if or where buckling will occur, and motorists are reminded to use caution and eliminate distractions to focus on the road ahead. Additionally, drivers should reduce speed and move over for all roadside workers repairing damaged pavement. If necessary, serious pavement issues can be reported by calling 911.
