Warm weather causes pavement to buckle

Authorities across central Wisconsin are receiving reports about pavement buckling on roads and highways due to high temperatures.

Road crews in Portage County had to shut down both westbound lanes of US 10 to repair broken pavement this afternoon. Those lanes are now back open.

WisDOT also reports pavement buckling in Lincoln County. Crews are working to repair the left lane of US 51 northbound near mile post 223. The problem was reported just after 5 o'clock tonight.

In Marathon County, the pavement buckled on Schofield Avenue and crews were working to re-pave the road.

Crews say this type of pavement buckling is common this time of year.
