Essex County, New Jersey –
As the snow starts to disappear, roads across New Jersey are left with potholes.
The state has invested $4 million to fix the pothole issue and recently unveiled massive machines dubbed “pothole killers”.
The machines can fill potholes at a rapid pace by injecting liquid asphalt into the roads. It only takes one person to operate.
People will start seeing signs across the state warning to be prepared to stop if there’s a pothole killer truck ahead.
Without the machine, normally they would have to first cold patch the potholes with a crew, as a temporary fix, and then come back to hot patch it.
