Colorado Springs Pot Hole-Palooza

Posted: 04/22/2013 - The Street Division continues its annual spring pothole-palooza over the next two weeks. In the first three weeks, City crews have filled over 3,000 potholes (over 1,000 per week). The intensive push to repair potholes continues for two more weeks and the Street Division needs help locating more potholes! We are asking drivers who spot potholes to call and report them to the Pothole Hotline – 385-ROAD (7623). When reporting a pothole, callers should provide detailed information such as street name, direction of traffic flow (north bound, south bound, etc.), the intersection, closest address (if known), side of the street, 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. Citizens with smart phones can download the City’s mobile request app to report potholes from www.springsgov.com/app. Potholes can also be reported through www.SprignsGov.com by clicking on “Customer Service” on the homepage. The City of Colorado Springs Streets Division maintains more than 1,500 center line miles of streets. A center line mile is the length of one mile of road regardless of the number of lanes. In the last 3 years, the City has filled an average of 25,500 potholes each year. Streets crews filled 28,821 potholes in 2012. The City does not repair potholes on County or State roads, such as South Academy south of Milton Proby (County) and Powers (State) and US 24 (State).
