Street Repairs

The infrastructure of the City has seen an increase of potholes since the start of the new year. Pothole formation requires two factors to be present at the same time: water and traffic. Water weakens the soil beneath the pavement; traffic applies the loads that stress the pavement past the breaking point.

Potholes form progressively, first from fatigue of the road surface, which can lead to a precursor failure pattern known as crocodile cracking. Finally, chunks of pavement between the fatigue cracks gradually work loose, and may eventually be plucked or forced out of the surface by continued wheel loads to create a pothole. With the substantial rainfall and higher amounts of vehicles moving through the City you can begin to understand why we have seen so many more potholes and other infrastructure problems than years past.

List of Repairs Year-to-Date

The following map and accompanying table highlights what our crews have been able to tackle since January of this year. This is just a small step in the right direction, but with the hard work of our crews and some good weather we can tackle more of our problems head on much quicker. If you have any potholes to report or questions/comments about the job we’re doing, please contact the Public Works Department at 979-323-1659.
