MILWAUKEE -- Several days of calm and mild weather has given the City of Milwaukee's Department of Public Works a prime opportunity to do patchwork on city streets.
Easing into spring sounds like a great idea, but for Matt Knetzger, it has been a rocky start.
"There's streets you can drive 35 miles-an-hour down and I'm doing 20, because everything in my truck will be on the ground," Knetzger said.
The delivery truck driver logs several hundred miles a day in a big box truck -- and said Milwaukee streets are not very forgiving.
"You've got to avoid every single pothole you can. They are just horrible," Knetzger said.
So while Knetzger said his truck is taking a beating, DPW crews are hitting back. Crews are patching potholes pretty much year-round, according to a department spokeswoman. On Wednesday, Feb. 28, FOX6 News caught up with a crew patching its way through the Bay View neighborhood.
