Drivers in Halifax may be enjoying a relatively snow-free commute these days, considering the time of year.

But the constant temperature swings may be enabling an early arrival of the pothole season.

Midas operations manager John Strickey tells Global News they're seeing clients coming in with problems already.

"We're starting to see more vehicles come in as the weather's drying up," said Strickey. "There's less ice and snow on the road and potholes are becoming more visible."

Meantime, HRM spokesperson Nick Ritcey says the city is looking for drivers to call 311 with any reports of potholes.

"We've fixed about 600 so far this season, and there's still about 200 on the list."

Ritcey says crews are always on the lookout for problem areas and says they'll be dealt with as soon as possible.
