VIDEO: Python 5000 Hits The Streets

The pothole-filling machine the Python 5000 is busy working on our city streets. 

It made its debut to the media Tuesday afternoon. 

City Roads Manager Brad Adams explains it's been in operation for a little over a week. 

"It's going to be all over the city," Adams says, "We'll have to basically rotate it from north [to] south and then to rural areas as well, but focusing mainly on our main streets."

Officials say they'll be using beet juice to lubricate moving parts so it doesn't freeze up during the winter months. (Photo/Video: Caroline Redston)
