Potholes return to city streets
Fluctuating temperatures mean the city streets are riddled with potholes.
"They’re pretty bad," said driver Hilda Reid. "They are more like craters than potholes."
"Maybe it was a tougher winter?" asked Ron Remouche. "But it’s a thing that happens every spring, so the sooner they get after it, the better."
Bob Dunford, the city’s director of roadway maintenance, says that about fifty crew members are working to fill the potholes.
"We normally fill about 420,000 to 450,000 potholes a year," he said. "January, we filled about 5,600 so we’re already [at a] good start."
Drivers can alert the city about potholes by calling 311 or going to the city’s "Report a Pothole" website.
