NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  The Tennessee Department of Transportation asked Wednesday that drivers be on the lookout for road crews filling potholes on mid-state roads, highways and interstates.

TDOT has launched what it describes as a “massive” effort to repair the damage done to road surfaces by last week’s severe storms.

Nashville, Murfreesboro and other area communities announced this week they will have their own repair crews out filling potholes as well.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says its officers have responded to numerous calls in recent days from motorists who report damage to their vehicles resulting from roadway potholes.

Drivers are encouraged to keep a sharp eye out for flashing lights, flaggers, heavy equipment and workers in the roadway.
