Owensboro Public Works Declares 'War on Potholes'

war potholesOWENSBORO, Ky. (4/17/14) — Winter weather has done its usual damage to city streets.

Frequent freezing and thawing cycles experienced during the winter months results in cracks in our streets that allow water to seep under the road surface. Street expansion associated with freezing followed by street contraction associated with thawing causes potholes.

In order to fill potholes created during the winter freeze cycle, the Owensboro Street Department has declared a "War on Potholes" from April 21 through April 25.

During this week, the public is asked to call City Action at (270) 687-4444 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to report the location of all potholes. Callers are asked to be as specific as possible on locations, preferably referencing a street address or intersection. The City of Owensboro will pass the location of potholes on state or county streets to the proper officials. The goal is to have every pothole in the city identified and patched as quickly as possible.

 

City crews will patch potholes the week of April 28 through May 2.
