Columbus Road Crews Fix 87,000 Potholes
The city of Columbus says its road crews have fixed nearly 87,000 potholes since the beginning of the year – about half of them in the past month.
The city said Monday that 43,063 potholes were filled during an intensive month-long effort that began March 17 – thousands more than in previous springs.
Employees worked 24 hours a day as weather permitted during the last two weeks in March fixing streets that had become pock-marked during an unusually snowy and cold winter.
Two weeks of 12-hour days followed that.
The work this past month followed an effort that saw 43,733 potholes fixed on city streets between Jan. 1 and March 16.
Columbus crews are responsible for 6,387 lane miles of roadway, the most of any city in Ohio.
