City crews getting a head start on pothole repair season

With warmer weather in the forecast and the snow melted, City crews have been able to use two asphalt recycler machines to begin pothole repairs early.   

Hot asphalt plants open the week of April 19. Until they do, the City's asphalt recycler machines allow crews to get a head start on some of the repairs needed before the annual pothole repair blitz begins.  

Since early April, the City has had three crews working to repair potholes on priority one and two streets. During the pothole repair blitz in May, motorists will see up to five crews working on repairs.  These crews will be spread across the City and working on all priority levels of streets.  

Reporting a pothole - community involvement is key   

Reporting a pothole generates a work order for City crews to address the damaged road in order of priority, and as quickly as possible. It also helps motorists to ensure work required to keep roads in good condition and minimize damage that can occur to vehicles.   

Work orders for pothole repairs can be generated one of two ways:   

1) through reports from road users; and   

2) through logs generated by City crews.   

Potholes can be reported to the City by calling Customer Service at (506) 658-4455, emailing or completing a service request form on the City’s website. 

We thank the public for their assistance as we work to keep our roads safe.
