Test pothole patch


One of the most common complaints heard by town officials is what can be done about potholes. In an effort to address the ongoing issue, The Town of Williamston is experimenting with an asphalt paving product called Unique Paving Materials. The patch product is available in the Upstate from Toddco Distributors of Spartanburg and is often used by SCDOT. The patch can be applied, tamped and is ready to be run over by traffic in approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Mayor Mack Durham said he hopes the product will decrease the frequency of having to repatch problem areas in the town. “We are looking for some way to better manage what we are doing,” he said. The town is also requesting paving from the Anderson County Transportation Committee to address streets that need repaving.
