NASHVILLE (AP) — The snow and ice may be gone, but the damage they left behind is still evident.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation says crews headed out on Monday to patch potholes on roadways and will stay busy all week.

Burel Tidwell with TDOT told WMSV that work crews are "a little overwhelmed" at the job ahead of them. According to media reports there are pothole problems all over the Midstate. Some are about as big as a basketball while others are the size of a small car.

TDOT spokeswoman Heather Jensen told WTVF-TV that heavy rain might slow the process, but it won't stop it. She said crews are trying to fill as many holes as possible, even in the rain, because there are so many.
