It's that time of the year again, Omaha crews are fighting an never-ending battle with potholes around town. 

When rain freezes in cracks in the road, potholes are almost inevitable, but Omaha street engineer Austin Rowser said more than 200 potholes have been filled in January and on average, the City fills about 375 every January. 

The City tries to proactively go out and find potholes to figure how severe they are and how much work needs to be done. 

It's not just January, the job of fixing Omaha's roads is year-round. 

"We don't ever stop," Rowser said. "Anytime we're not plowing snow, we're patching potholes."
