City of Toronto to launch pothole blitz this weekend

The City of Toronto will launch a pothole repair blitz this Saturday to keep the City’s expressways, major roads and neighbourhood streets in a state of good repair. 

Approximately 133 staff forming 36 crews will work a 12-hour shift from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. to resolve as many 311 Service Requests for potholes and road damage as possible.

Crews will focus particular attention on the following areas:

– King Street Transit Priority Corridor

– Scarborough North

– Etobicoke North

– Northwest area of North York

Crews will also proactively repair any other potholes found during the city-wide blitz.

Residents driving or cycling are advised to expect minor delays around pothole crews. The public is asked to be safe by respecting work zones and giving crews space while they make repairs.

Since January 1, crews have repaired nearly 100,000 potholes which is higher than the same four month period over the last four years. Members of the public can report potholes to 311 via the 311 Toronto mobile app, online at www.toronto.ca/311 or by calling 311.
