The North Central Super Pave Center works to develop new asphalt mixtures that let in as little moisture as possible.
INDOT spokesman Nathan Riggs says they've used nearly seven thousand tons of asphalt and 8,100 employee hours to fill potholes so far this winter.
Road crews will create temporary patches with small stones and liquid asphalt as rising temperatures this week cause potholes.
The city has filled 800 of them already this winter and expects hundreds more.
Road patching techniques are being blamed for damaged buses in Trafalgar.
