WAUWATOSA - A busy street has been shutdown because of a side effect of the extreme cold.

Chopper 4 captured video of the Menomonee River Parkway in Wauwatosa. 
 
It was shutdown because of large potholes and crumbling asphalt.
 
Neighbors say they're all too familiar with the unsafe conditions on the street. 
 
Celia Mullarkey lives near the shutdown street.
 
"When I drive through, I feel like I'm going to beat up the front of my car going through it." Said Mullarkey.
 
The county said the extreme cold has hampered repairs because the asphalt won't set properly when it is this cold.
