Rizzo Reports Most Potholes Filled in May

Responding to continued criticisms from the City Council – and from residents in general – Mayor Dan Rizzo last week released the first of what he hopes will be an annual ‘Pothole Report.’

Using data from a new Internet-based reporting program and a new, date-driven work order system, the report summarizes the numbers of potholes filled in the city, what streets they’re on and when they were filled.

The report details that Department of Public Works (DPW) crews filled 2,035 potholes from Jan. 1 to June 25. Of those, Washington Avenue had the most potholes filled with 134.

The top 10 streets is as follows:

1. Washington Avenue, 134

2. Highland Street, 90

3. Garfield Avenue, 87

4. Crescent Avenue, 80

5. Janvrin Avenue, 78

6. Rumney Road, 7
