The hot air isn't just making Washingtonians sweat --it's making the roads crack.
The Virginia Department of Transportation is warning drivers to look out for buckling roads as temperatures again soar past 100 degrees on Saturday.
Crews found and repaired minor buckling on the HOV lanes on Interstate 395 near Seminary road on Tuesday, VDOT announced.
"Consistent temperatures in the mid- to high-90s have put road surfaces across the state at risk for buckling," VDOT engineer Andy Babish said in a statement. "Pavement expands in the heat, and cannot contract if it does not cool down enough overnight. It continues to expand, and that's when we could see damage."
Drivers can report buckling and other damage at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623).
