City crews begin pothole patching blitz

About 50 work crews will hit Toronto roads Monday morning

If you've been driving a lot lately, you probably had to avoid hitting some very deep potholes on Toronto roads. That's why about 50 work crews will hit the roads on Monday.

They will be patching up potholes until the end of the week.

The Manager of Road Operations says crews will be examining, main roads, and local streets.

The frigid temperatures we saw last week, followed by the thaw we had this past weekend put a lot of stress on roadways, according to officials.

So far this year, city crews have already repaired about 4,000 potholes, compared to about 1,500 at this point last season.

If you know of an area that needs some repair, you can report it by calling 3-1-1

    On friday I heard a spokesman from the city saying the work was to start right away so as not to cause any or as little traffic disruption as possible. So in their infinite wisdom it started bright and early Monday morning. What happened with saturday and sunday? Can't be much of an urgent issue and they don't give a sh$t about the citizens.

      @john .....or even better- the stuff they use to patch the pot-holes, they should probably use on Kathleen Wynne's mouth. God, that woman can talk.

      Though it may take more than a truckful of asphalt....

    There's a giant pothole in the curb lane on Parkside Drive southbound just past High Park Blvd. It's been there for a week now closing that lane of traffic causing a merging nightmare during the afternoon commute. Why does this take a week to fix?
