County crews fixing potholes after recent rains

City and county roads took a beating during the recent string of storms.

County crews were out on Friday patching up potholes on highly traveled streets.

“Rain is the enemy of the roads. We really do a lot to keep water out of them,” said public works deputy director Chris Sneddon. “The more we start to get rain, the more some of those potholes will start to pop out more.”

Crews also canvassed general problem areas in the county.

Caltrans workers repaired potholes on Highway 101 between Carpinteria Creek and Linden Avenue on Friday.

The northbound slow was closed while work was completed.

Officials said major paving projects over the last three years from Santa Barbara to San Luis Obispo have kept the highway in good condition.
