MISHAWAKA — As the snow slowly disappears, drivers now have to deal with more potholes. One problem area people have told WSBT about is the intersection of Capital Avenue and Lincoln Way East.
The state maintains that intersection. Crews were out earlier this week filling many of the potholes, and INDOT says they'll be out in that area again on Thursday.
But with different roads maintained by different departments, many people have a tough time figuring out who to call to get a pothole filled. Here's a good rule of thumb to remember: If the road has a number associated with it, like 331 or 933, it's most likely maintained by the state and you will have to call INDOT to get it fixed.
If you are not sure whether a pothole is the county or city's responsibility, check a nearby address. If it has five digits, it is most likely the county's responsibility. Anything less than five and it's a city job.
