The holidays may be over, but pothole season has only just begun. Mayor Michael Bloomberg says his transportation department is on a pothole-filling blitz. Extreme winter weather makes potholes occur more frequently.

In the last five weeks, city crews have filled more than 20,000 potholes on the city's 6,000 miles of streets.

And the city is repairing holes in a green-friendly way. The transportation department recycles old pavement into a new asphalt product that is reused to fill potholes.
