March 29, 2019 Update
Pothole damage worse than expected, crews making progress
For the past several weeks, Public Works crews have been working to repair and fill potholes located throughout the City. The damage is more extensive than initially thought and is taking longer to repair as a result. Here is an update on our progress:

Daily, Public Works has two crews filling holes using asphalt.

One crew is working on the main streets (72nd, 84th, 96th and 108th streets, Giles Road and Harrison Street), and repair in these areas is approximately 80 percent complete.

The second crew is focused on the collector streets, which includes Park View Boulevard, Brentwood Drive, Granville Parkway, Edgewood Boulevard and 78th Street. When these streets are finished, crews will move into the neighborhoods.

During the month of March, crews have applied 48 tons of cold mix and 57 tons of hot asphalt. At a rate of approximately 100 pounds per pothole, crews have repaired more than 2,000 potholes (approximately 150 per day) considering weather and other factors.

Crews will continue repairing potholes until the job is done.
