The shifts in cold weather over the past few weeks have led to the formation of potholes in several streets throughout the Patchogue and Medford area.

Frank Petrignani, communications director of Brookhaven Town's highway department, told Patch that the department currently has deployed crews throughout the area to repair them.

"Thanks to above average temperatures, asphalt plants are open to supply hot mix material for these repairs," Petrignani said in an email. "The Department will continue its use of hot mix asphalt until the plants once again close. In the absence of hot mix, cold patch material will be used to continue addressing pothole repair."

Brookhaven residents, such as those in East Patchogue, North Patchogue and Medford, can report potholes to the highway department at 631-451-9200.

Residents in Patchogue Village can report potholes to the Department of Public Works by calling 631-475-4300 and following the voice prompts to reach the department. Village trustee Joseph Keyes told Patch last year that the department generally works off of a complaint list.

Patch asked residents on its Facebook Page where they have been finding potholes, and here are several of their responses:

The streets on N. Prospect Ave. need to be leveled. The various and continued oil trucks that bump along the road in the fall and winter and then the landscaping vehicles in the spring, summer and fall that continuously drive heavy loads at fast speeds have made the roads on Prospect Ave and Highland Ave treacherous for drivers and for our kids!

Our roads are crumbling in the Village residential areas.

The roads are crumbling ALL OVER BROOKHAVEN. Roads never get repaved, just patched and patched. But we re-elected the same highway superintendent in Nov.

I think the state and county do a fantastic job maintaining the roads in Brookhaven. Thank you to our State and County Highway Depts.

I was visiting a friend last month. Amongst the speeding landscape truck was out very own Mayor. Doing at least forty five mph, bouncing wildly down the road past a group of kids. I will be that is why there is zero response on the complaints my buddy made to the SCPD fifth precinct. He drives like nut and was even stopped by a resident and screamed at by PP keeps on truckin and speeding.

Hey how about Lake St??? Could use some stone or something,I am sure Tri-tec can afford it. Motorists cannot afford damage caused by Construction.

It really is absurd what is going on on that site and the damage they caused. I am calling it the Apartment Canyon. Why is it that the structure is now on village property on the NE corner? Mayor can you answer that for me? Thanks
