The city roads are in bad shape this year.

Newstalk 1010 has learned that since January 1st - crews have already fixed up 33-thousand potholes.

Compare that to 14-thousand at this time last year.

Director of transportation service Peter Noehammer says the repairs have cost us 620-thousand-dollars so far this year, when we had spent 360-thousand at this point in 2013.

Part of that cost is staffing - there are 30 to 35 crews out there each day right now, when there are usually about 20.

On average, the city spends 3.5-million a year on pothole repairs.
