By Crossroads Mall at the intersection of 72nd and Dodge might be the biggest batch of potholes Omaha drivers have seen.

"It's huge, it's all the way across the entire lane," driver Amanda Haliburton said.

Drivers have been filing reports of more potholes to the city of Omaha, spanning from Carter Lake to 204th street. Multiple reports have been made around 72nd and Dodge Streets.

"You don't see it until you actually turn into the lane," Haliburton said. "So there's no way to change lanes before you hit the pothole."

A viewer even tells KMTV 3 News Now about the potholes around a bridge near 120th and Q Streets. Craters have been costing her hundreds in repairs.

Even at 132nd and West Center Road, more cars are nearly bottoming out in what looks like a mine field.

"You're having to drive five miles-per-hour hoping you don't ruin your car because of all the potholes you're dodging," driver Amanda Arends said. "I think they need a lot of work down here."

Another obstacle drivers have to overcome and drive around.

"It just seems like no matter what road you go down, they're everywhere," Arends said.
