Pothole problems: City filling as quickly as they can

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

It’s either a mark of honor or shame: Chicago’s Depy of Streets and San has filled its 200,000th pothole.

The harsh weather has already put us way ahead of last year’s pace when CDOT crews filled more than 600,000 potholes.

This year’s average is 250 holes filled, per crew–per day.Mayor Emanuel announced the addition of six more crews, capable of filling an additional 1500 holes per day.

Chicagoans can track the fight against potholes and see a week’s worth of CDOT’s work on the City’s Pothole Tracker application at: www.cityofchicago.org/potholetracker
