In spite of the wet start for Monday, Wagga City Council has started road works repairing the intersection at Old Narrandera Road and Pine Gully Road.
The planned surface repair of the intersection is scheduled to continue until Friday, although this could change depending on weather conditions over the coming week.
The area has been plagued with potholes of late due to the heavy rainfall over June and July, along with the heavy traffic.
A statement from Wagga City Council said: "Despite the rain, road repair works started on Old Narrandera Road and Pine Gully Road intersection today and will continue until Friday as planned, weather permitting.
"The works we're conducting this week involve repairing the damaged road surface."
But his intersection is not the only location around Wagga plagued with potholes, with the wet conditions unveiling many across the city, such as on Red Hill Road.
A press release from Wagga City Council said they were doing regular pothole patrols and the damage has been caused by a combination of the wet weather, along with the below par condition of bitumen seals and the poor quality of pavement material underneath.
Council's Director of Operations Warren Faulkner said in a press release they are relying on public feedback to help control the situation.
"It [potholes] is one of Council's ongoing challenges. Potholes are always a community concern, especially after long periods of wet weather because they are more noticeable," he said.
"Areas which experience high traffic flows are always worst affected and these are the areas where we concentrate our resources.
"We have patrols working along a 1200km network of local sealed roads to keep the repairs up. Council also relies on public feedback to identify where attention is required and we respond to that as soon as possible."

"We need to improve the 'waterproofing' of our sealed roads by undertaking crack sealing, thus increasing the useful life of the pavement," Mr Faulkner said.
Funding programs have played a significant part in providing the region with significant road repairs, such as on Kooringal Road.
Residents are encouraged to report road damages by the Snap Send Solve app, the Council's website, by lodging a request through Customer Service or by calling 1300 292 442.
