Potholes across Mid-Michigan are getting bigger and more treacherous with the recent freeze-thaw cycle.

Drivers said patches are just a Band-Aid for the statewide problem.

“They need to be fixed, like really fixed. That’s what they need to do,” one driver said.

“They put a patch down, the next day it’s out again,” another driver said.

“Since I moved here now I have bad wheel bearings and bad ball joints because the potholes are just killing my suspension,” another driver said.

As Mid-Michigan heats up, pesky potholes pop up.

Mark Aldrich said the worst ones around are on his block.

“I’m hoping this is the year for Malzahn. It’s emergency run for ambulances and police cars. So, I don’t know why it’s so bad,” the Saginaw resident said.
