BROOKLYN - City officials say there is now a faster way to patch up all the potholes that popped up during the winter.

Mayor Bill de Blasio says that after a year of renovations, the Hamilton Avenue Asphalt Plant will be able to produce 30 percent more asphalt than before. That means that the road crews will be able to resurface roads faster throughout the city.

The $25 million facility will allow for more recycled asphalt, which the mayor says is important because it will save taxpayers millions of dollars.

So far, the city has filled 338,000 potholes and paved 173 miles of roadway.
