The polar vortex is gone and streets are clear of more than a foot of snow that preceded it. But the arrival of welcome warmer temperatures also seems to have sparked a bloom of potholes in the Detroit area.

Potholes are perennial, of course, but since the extreme cold subsided at the middle of last week, many have start to appear in Detroit and the suburbs, according to media reports. The spike is tied to the 55-degree swing in temperatures from extreme, subzero temperatures to unseasonable warm conditions that have neared 40 degrees.

Is the same true in Berkley and Huntington Woods? Tell us where you spotted (or drove through) one by listing it in the comment box below so we can warn other drivers and give city road staff a heads up on what needs to be fixed.

You can also report potholes directly to the Michigan Department of Transportation online or at (888) 296-4546.

SB Coolidge between Webster and 12 Mile. Really bad.

Agreed Norm, however the entire N & S stretch from 12 to Webster is a pot hole. I suggest stop wasting money on cold patch that lasts 3 cars that drive over it. Repave it!!! It's time!!
