MoDOT is warning drivers about the possibility of pavement blow-up
"Engineers call it a pavement blow-up. It happens when pavement expands because of high temperatures and humidity. Most times, engineers say these are happening on roads with a lot of traffic like I-70 and I-35.
"You'll see pieces and chunks of concrete and their jagged edges. So a lot of times what you'll see, is a vehicle drag if they're really, really severe or they might blow out a tire," said MoDOT engineer Mike Schupp."
Now, this isn't just a highway problem but a longstanding issue as KCMO streets, avenues and boulevards have become filled with potholes and steel plates amid the deferred maintenance tenure of Mayor Sly James.
