INDIANAPOLIS -- If you think the roads are bad now, just imagine what they were like before crews filled nearly 30,000 potholes over the past four days. 

Indianapolis Department of Public Works says crews took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and used a 'hot mix' during their four-day blitz.

'Hot mix' is an asphalt mix is a longer-lasting pothole fix and adheres better than the asphalt mix that's typically used during the colder months.
