Many local residents have suspected that the potholes are worse than usual this winter, and they're apparently right.

Wakefield DPW Director Richard Stinson told Wakefield Patch in a Tuesday phone conversation that recent weather patterns have exacerbated with a combination of a freeze/thaw effect mixed with plenty of rain and snow. 

Stinson said the Wakefield DPW crews have been out patching up potholes throughout town, with a particular focus on the main roads - and that work will continue into the spring and beyond if necessary. 

Residents who have a pothole on their street can call the DPW office at 781-246-6301 to report it.
