Indiana Governor Mike Pence this afternoon announced efforts the state will take to repair the roads. Governor Pence says INDOT is working to acquire additional materials to temporarily patch the roads, including cold-mix asphalt and crushed stone, as most hot-mix asphalt plants in the state close during the winter. Pence says as soon as the weather permits, supplemental crews will be deployed to repair as many roads as quickly as possible.
So far this fiscal year, INDOT has spent about two-point-nine million dollars, expended about 81-thousand employee man hours and used about 69-hundred tons of material.
