Pothole repairs are a big priority in San Jose following heavy rains that slammed the region.
The city has deployed so-called spray-injection trucks for small jobs. Officials said the one-man operation works fast, which means roads being repaired do not have to be closed.
"Certainly after a rainstorm the number of calls we get will double or triple," said Ralph Mize with the city's transportation department.
In most cases, fixing potholes is a "Band-Aid" solution. The transportation department acknowledges many streets need full re-paving jobs, but a bigger budget is needed for that kind of overhaul.
