Pittsburgh Public Works To Kick Off 3-Day Pothole Blitz
Got a nasty tire eater in your neighborhood? The city of Pittsburgh wants to hear from you.
City officials announced Wednesday that public works crews will conduct a pothole “blitz” starting at 6 a.m. Thursday. They plan to work 12-hour shifts repairing potholes through Saturday.
In a press release, the Department of Public works said it already has a list of 300 reported potholes. Residents are encouraged to report additional potholes via the city’s 311 line.
Each year, the city deals with hundreds – sometimes thousands – of paving requests. In 2017, the city received a total of 7,112 calls, emails and tweets regarding potholes and street repaving.
