As winter winds down, there are two things we can be certain of:  It is going to begin to get warmer and there is a pothole out there waiting to give you and your car a sudden jolt.

But, what if we could make our roads capable of withstanding the forces of nature? What if we could build streets and highways out of material that held together and made potholes a thing of the past?

On this edition of UWM Today, meet an engineer who is developing high performance concrete that can last 120 years or more. Konstantin Sobolev is a professor of Civil Engineering and Mechanics
