With all the new construction in the upstate especially the Simpsonville SC and Fountain Inn SC areas, the roads are being travelled by larger construction vehicles. This is taking a toll on our small-town roads. The number of new potholes is growing faster than they can be fixed. Hitting one of these potholes can cost you a lot of money. Stay alert out there. Just because there was not a pothole there yesterday does not mean there won’t be one today.
