MILFORD, Del. (AP) - The saying goes that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but what if the road was paved with pizza?

News outlets report national delivery-based pizza chain Domino's is aiming to make commutes around the country a little less hellish, by helping to repair potholes.

The company's "Paving for Pizza" program has launched in four test cities: Athens, Georgia; Bartonville, Texas; Burbank, California and Milford, Delaware.

Fees for oversized vehicle permits are going up in Delaware.

The Delaware Department of Transportation will double the price for oversize permits and will triple the superloads in October.

They are expected to bring in $1.5 million.

WBOC reports that the funds will go to repair roads damaged by large trucks as well maintenance.

None of the funds will go toward new projects.

Other DMV fee hikes and toll increases will cover paving and repairing roads as well as some projects that have been delayed.

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Motorists are seeing an early crop of potholes on Delaware roads this winter.

The state Department of Transportation says all of its districts are reporting an increase in potholes because of temperature swings.

The News Journal reports that crews are having a tough time keeping up...because of the weather.

Potholes usually appear in late winter or early spring, but this year, a deep freeze and fast warming coupled with lots of precipitation have brought them out early.
