Pothole complaints down, but number expected to rise

  • Print

Calls to report potholes are down this year, probably due to the weather, city spokesman Ken Allen says.

Eleven crews are busy filling potholes on Priority 1 and Priority 2 streets right now but that number is expected to be stepped up as the weather warms up in April.

Pothole complaints to 311 are down by 200 so far. By this time last year, 850 complaints had been made. So far this year there have been 630 complaints about potholes.

That number is also expected to step up in the next few weeks.

"I don't have a list of the streets that are the worst," spokesman Ken Allen said. "The focus is on the main streets and the collector streets. That's where 80 per cent of the traffic is."
