KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – Anyone who drives has been a victim of the vicious holes that show up in asphalt.  It is the result of the freeze/thaw during the winter and spring seasons.

Now that warmer temperatures are more consistent, street repair crews are busy.  Stroop Road between Marshall Road and Wilmington Avenue has been a tough place to drive for quite some time.  Monday, city crews were were removing the old asphalt and resurfacing.

Drivers like Patrick Sullivan are really happy about seeing the repairs. He thought a weak budget meant drivers would have to put up with rocky streets, but local municipalities are taking advantage of the temperature warm ups, patching potholes so that drivers get smooth commutes. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
