Entering the wet & muddy season
Minnesota Department of Transportation crews tried to repair potholes in U.S Highway 12 (Atlantic Avenue) Monday. But with the high reaching 50 degrees in Benson, snowmelt creates large pools of water on the roadway making the job more difficult. Some of the deep potholes can catch a driver by surprise when they lie obscured under a larger pool of water.
