This return of winter weather delayed the reopening of the asphalt plant on Southside.
Meanwhile, some people in Mineral wells say potholes in their neighborhood are a year-round problem.
And the streets of Mount Pleasant Estates prove it.
Neighbors say potholes and poor drainage make it tough for children to get to the bus stop.
Also, the roads are in such poor condition the kids can't ride bikes and play in the street.
Neighbors say temporary patches from the division of highways is not solving the problem.
They want a better return on their tax dollars.
"I work hard and pay for what I have. I don't like having to replace things on my car. It gets very frustrating that something that could be fixed just isn't fixed. I do pay taxes and I expect it to be taken care of," says resident Darla Coe.
The division of highways calls Mount Pleasant estates a "low priority".
Local transportation officials say they don't have enough funds from the state, or manpower, to replace the neighborhood's roads.
That call would have to come from the governor's office.
