City of Cheyenne plans to try a new pothole mix

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -- The new pothole mix activates when water is added and the mix binds with itself and the hole. The public works director hopes the binder helps the mix stay in place instead of popping out like an ice cube when water seeps in and freezes.

The mix is being tested by the city after it was demonstrated at a conference. Public Works Director, Vicki Nemecek, said, "We've got to test it. We don't know if it, you know we've seen it work in a nice warm room where they pour nice clean water on it, haha. so we're testing it to see if it's going to work."

The City needs to have the right conditions in order to begin testing the mix. It is more expensive than what the Department has been using.
