COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina Department of Transportation is sending its crews on a pothole blitz to repair roads across the state.

Officials say a rainy fall and early winter has caused a rash of potholes.

Transportation officials say the public can help crews by reporting potholes on the department’s website or by calling its pothole hotline at 855-467-2368.

State officials say crews will work extra hours to try to get as many potholes filled as possible.
