With the extreme changes in temperature lately, many towns in Massachusetts are dealing with pothole issues earlier than normal.

Fortunately, Sudbury isn't one of those towns.

DPW Director Bill Place said his crews have had to patch only a couple this winter season despite the snowstorms and large fluctuations in temperatures.

Resident Michelle Kadelski Dorgan told Sudbury Patch there are some between Fugakyu and Sudbury Farms traveling east on Boston Post Road.

"We're holding OK," he said. "The roads are in good shape. We don’t have that much of a problem."

But others problems have been presented.

Place said the town's snow removal budget is about 50 percent gone with the winter season not yet at the halfway point. 

"The problem now is salt deliveries," he said. "They are few and far between. It's really becoming a problem all across the state."

Place said the last storm, which dumped about nine inches of snow over two days, provided few issues. 

"There were a couple of mailboxes hit (from plowing)," he said. "(Motorists) kept off the streets which was good. We got the roads cleaned up in a short time."
