DPW crews fill over 700 pot holes this week

February 2, 2018

City DPW crews have been out repairing roads this week with the warmer temperatures. They made critical repairs to 56th Street, German Church Road and 79th Street, according to DPW Director of Streets Dave Lotts.

Dave Lotts, DPW Director of Streets said his crews have taken advantage of the the warmer temperatures and the availability of "hot mix" this week. With the extreme temperatures this winter, damage to the streets has taken place. "The temperatures cause the streets to contract and break up with such drastic temp differentials," Lotts said.

While cold fill resolves pot holes temporarily, Lotts said the hot mix available this week should provide relief to drivers for a longer time. He said the crews worked hard with the materials to restore the pavement on heavily-used roads like German Church, 79th Street and 56th Street.
