Report potholes to 311

Last winter was rough and crews spent the summer preparing for another one with activities like patching potholes, cracksealing the roads, and resurfacing work through our Street Preservation Program

Crews continue switching between snow operations (when a storm rolls in) and maintenance activities like pothole patching.
