The polar vortex is gone, snow has been largely cleared from the streets. But the arrival of unseasonably warm temperatures, it seems, has sparked a bloom of potholes in the Chicago region.
Potholes are perennial, but media reports since the extreme cold subsided at the middle of last week indicate there are far more cropping up this year. The reports associate the spike with the sudden change in conditions from extreme, subzero temperatures to unseasonable warm conditions that have approached 40 degrees.
In Buffalo Grove, potholes can be reported to the village using this form.
Keep in mind that some roads running through the village are maintained by Lake or Cook county or the Illinois Department of Transportation.
