ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the appearance of 25 thousand holes on the streets of Manhattan, New York City. About 95% of the holes are present in asphalt pavement. It describes the layers of asphalt streets. It cites the significance of constant use to asphalt pavement. Asphalt is a bituminous substance that comes from refining petroleum and tends to become brittle with age.
