Pothole Update

As a result of the huge ice storm a couple of weeks ago – which actually caused more damage than the hurricane winds of 2008 – Division of Street Maintenance crews are still heavily engaged in removing downed trees, branches, and related storm debris. As a result, crews have been unable to devote as much time as usual to filling potholes, which pop up this time of year. While crews are repairing any overly large or dangerous potholes immediately, the many smaller ones are on hold until the storm clean-up efforts are completed early next month.

Large or dangerous potholes should be reported to the Public Works Call Center at 333-4800.
