Bridgeport's road maintenance supervisor Craig Nadrizny says the truck is environmentally friendly, cost-effective and quick when it comes to repairing potholes. The city is leasing the truck from the Pennsylvania company that invented it.

The driver maneuvers a hose and sprays a formula into the cracked surface, fixing the pothole. The repair is expected to last five to seven years.
