Potholes develop when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and then thaws. This cycle weakens the pavement. The added weight of vehicular traffic accelerates the problem because it further crumbles the pavement and continues “pop out.”
When spring temperatures warm the pavement, it causes the ice to melt evaporating any water in existing cracks or under the pavement creating air pockets where the ice once was that eventually causes the pavement to break up as vehicles drive over it. Winters of heavy snow or rain coupled with severe freeze-thaw cycles can mean a big pothole season.
The pothole is over excavated and cut to create a straight edge. When the excess asphalt is removed, an adhesive (tack coat) is applied and the new asphalt placed in layers not to exceed 2 inches and compacted with a steel drum roller.
There are several reasons why a newly filled pothole may reopen:
The Town of Taos Public Works Department is responsible for patching potholes on the 44 miles of paved roadways that are owned by the Town of Taos and 13 parking lots within the town proper. The Town is committed to addressing potholes as soon as possible after receiving a report.

If you encounter a pothole on a Town maintained road you may report it here. For any other road maintenance issues, you may call 575-751-2047. Public Works investigates each report and will schedule repairs as soon as practical.
