UPDATE 2/5:  If the temperature drops to freezing Thursday, most pothole repairs will stop.

“Crews can’t do the hot mix because of potential ice in the road,” Virginia Beach public works spokesperson Drew Lankford said.

Officials say they can fill potholes with a cold mix, but that’s just a temporary fix. They’d rather wait for the weather to warm up so they can use the hot mix, which lasts longer.

NORFOLK -- Snow is melting in Hampton Roads and winter weather is still causing hazards for drivers- now, it's potholes.

Drivers tell 13News Now they've seen trouble spots in the Ghent-area of Norfolk, along Indian River Road in Virginia Beach, and at Edinburgh and St. Bride in Chesapeake.

Many cities are still clearing snow from the roads and laying down salt and sand mixtures to make it safe for drivers.

Two holes were filled Friday morning off Colley Avenue in Norfolk after a citizen tells 13News Now she made a complaint to the city.

Officials say they won't take on the task of patching up potholes until remnants of the snow are gone.

Drivers say this will be another road hazard to watch out for on their commute.
