It is, of course, an occurance that drivers face every year. As the temperatures drop below freezing, and then warm back up again, the roads can crack and buckle. City officals say they've already been busy patching up roads this week, although some side streets are still covered in snow. If you're concerned about a certain pothole, you can call 552-PATCH to alert city workers to the problem. But that only applies to streets in the City of Eau Claire, and not Clairemont Avenue, which is a county highway.
