(April 12, 2019)

Over the past seven days (April 4-11), the number of pothole repairs far exceeded  the number of new pothole reports. New reports are consistently declining.

While main, high-traffic streets and intersections remain the priority, city and contractor crews are also now working  on residential neighborhoods.

We request citizens make pothole reports to the Mayor’s Hotline 402-444-5555, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or omahahotline.com rather than social media sites so reports can be promptly reported to the Street Maintenance Division for repair.

 

APRIL 5-11

REPORTED POTHOLES: 3,175*

POTHOLES REPAIRED:   6,020

ASPHALT USED:   843 TONS

 

MARCH 29-APRIL 4

REPORTED POTHOLES: 5,772*

POTHOLES REPAIRED: 7,445 

ASPHALT USED:  1,044 TONS

 

MARCH 18-27

REPORTED POTHOLES: 7,407*

POTHOLES REPAIRED: 5,550

ASPHALT USED:  775 TONS

*This includes every reported location, even locations reported multiple times, so the actual number is much lower.

The repair estimate is based on the amount of asphalt used and the average size of repaired potholes (3’ x 3’ x 8” deep).

We are using this estimate because pothole reports are bundled into work orders for scheduled repairs.  A work order can be one pothole, or a street with multiple potholes, so this estimate is the most accurate number.
