Drive along State Road 44 in Franklin and you’ll find it nearly impossible to dodge every large crack and hole in the road.

Between U.S. 31 and Interstate 65 in Franklin, the highway is littered with potholes after last week’s snowstorm. The pavement has worn down to the bricks in areas on Jefferson Street west of the downtown.

Some areas on Jefferson are covered with black, bumpy patches from when Indiana Department of Transportation workers patched holes after flooding on Dec. 22, but new holes have opened up right next to them.
