INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - On Tuesday Drivers on Indianapolis' west side ran into snarled traffic as crews scurried to fix gaping potholes that formed overnight.
The left two lanes of I-465 southbound past US 136/Crawfordsville Road closed for a period while repairs were made.
Several potholes grew overnight as moisture in the roadway froze and expanded, forming the craters in the roadway.
The most pronounced potholes were in the southbound lane of Interstate 465 near Allisonville Road and again on I-465 Between State Road 136 and the Eagle Creek ramp in the southbound lanes.
Indiana State Police tell 24-Hour News 8 at least 4 cars hit the pothole and have flat tires.
If you hit a pothole on a numbered Interstate, US Highway, or State Road you can file a tort claim to the Attorney General's office for the cost of repairs.
The forms are on the INDOT website but, they aren't easy to find .
If you hit a pothole in the city of Indianapolis you can file a tort claim to get reimbursed for damages. However, only 10 percent of claims submitted last pothole season were deemed valid and actually paid.
"It's worse hitting potholes on the city street than the Interstate, because you're going slower," said Ray Cerceo, manager at Midas.
"We have had customers with bills up to $1,500 for pothole damage. My simple advice is keep your tires full, and avoid those potholes," said Cerceo.
