For those who live in snow-prone regions, driving in the winter can feel like an exercise in futility: Unsuspecting, and then it appears, a crater in the asphalt, just waiting to blow out a tire. You try to swerve, brace for impact, and then: Kathunk.

But commuters of America, take heart: Indianapolis has it worse.

Much, much worse.

The capital of Indiana (whose state motto is, ironically, “the crossroads of America”) has essentially become one large pothole, compliments of wild temperature swings this winter. The metropolis is so pockmarked by decaying asphalt that local officials have said that more than $730 million is required to repair over 8,100 miles of streets — nearly six times the city’s current budget for transportation infrastructure.

Decades of neglect and underfunding, combined with the brutality of Midwestern winters, have left the city’s roads resembling the surface of the moon. To assist motorists, the city last year posted an “Indy pothole viewer” map online, which currently shows 4,388 open potholes, marked by a swarm of angry red dots.

In Des Moines, the city fills about 7,000 potholes a year. And in Chicago, which recently emerged from a brutal few days of subzero temperatures and where snow is forecast for five out of the next seven days, the city received just shy of 4,400 pothole complaints from residents in January.
