SUMMER DRIVING REMINDER

SUMMER DRIVING REMINDER

Rising temperatures are causing some roads to buckle, and transportation officials are warning people to watch out. 

Wisconsin Department of Transportation Chief Material and Pavements Engineer Barry Paye says road buckles can happen any time there’s extreme heat and the first heat wave of the year is the most likely time for this to happen. He says the pavement expands and collapses underground as temperatures fluctuate from cold to hot. The slabs of pavement push against one another causing one to give and create a lip, or a buckle, on the roadway.
