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.
As of January 13, 2020, crews patched 18,859 potholes reported through 311. A total of 843 cases remain open, which means 19,704 pothole cases have been recorded in the 311 system since January 2019. This is about a fifth of the actual potholes patched across KCMO in 2019.
As another winter season arrives, crews will switch between snow operations (when a storm rolls in) and maintenance activities like pothole patching.
We still encourage you to continue reporting potholes to 311, so we know where they are located and can patch them as quickly as possible.
View the pothole map on Open Data KC. Red are resolved 311 cases and green are open. The map refreshes every 30 minutes.
Public Works currently has openings for maintenance workers and equipment operators, with additional openings in the Parks, Neighborhoods and Aviation departments. For more information or to apply, check kcmo.gov/jobs.
