The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is using an innovative, cost-effective material to patch potholes that have occurred as a result of harsh weather. Organic additives in the material cause it to harden immediately when water is added to the mix. This means that staff can patch potholes quickly, spending less time at dangerous workzones. With the new material, faster repairs allow for roads to be disrupted for shorter periods of time.
