Pothole Repairs are Underway
The Department of Public Works is actively inspecting and repairing potholes throughout the city. Potholes can be caused by water seeping under the pavement through cracks or from the side of the road. The material under the pavement erodes from the water damage causing the pavement to break and sink down. Winter causes the water under the pavement to freeze and thaw causing contracting and expanding. This freeze and thaw cycle causes the pavement to crack. Once cracked, the pavement deteriorates under the weight of traffic and potholes seem to appear overnight. To report a pothole,
