Heat Causes Pavement Buckling Problems

The hot weather this weekend caused problems with pavement
buckling on area roadways. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office took a
report of buckled pavement on Interstate 41 near Military Road just after 2:30
Saturday afternoon. One of the southbound lanes on the highway had to be
repaired and the road was down to one lane for a time while highway crews
worked to fix the damage. Highway crews also had to repair parts of Highway 151
near the I-41 interchange on Sunday afternoon after the pavement buckled. The
Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and also took reports of two pavement buckles
near Waupun on Saturday.
