The City of Colorado Springs reports 600 potholes has been filed in the last week. This is the time of year when the Streets Division tackles potholes, which get much worse in the winter as the pavement freezes and thaws over and over.
Potholes are prioritized by location, so potholes on main arterials receive a higher priority.
The City would like to ask citizens to keep reporting potholes by calling the Pothole Hotline - 385-ROAD (7623). Help in locating and reporting potholes is a crucial part of this effort.
When reporting a pothole, callers should provide as much detailed information such as street name with closest intersection, direction of traffic flow (northbound, southbound, etc.), and location in the street such as left or right edge line or middle, inside or outside lane. Due to the huge influx of calls expected, citizens should not expect a personal reply to their request. For gravel or alley potholes, citizens can call 385-5934.
