Four-week pothole endeavor to prompt City of Cincinnati fill holes that winter left behind

CINCINNATI -- The City of Cincinnati will begin four weeks of hard work to repair potholes that winter left behind.

A blitz set to kickoff the repair work was pushed back to next week, but officials said the public still needs to phone in the street hazards.

As public services workers make over streets with pothole problems, spokesman Larry Whitaker said they need help from the public to identify the areas where potholes developed during harsh weather.

The city asks that potholes are reported with the City Hall app , available for smartphones, an online submission or through the customer service center .

The app, Whitaker said, uses GPS technology to locate where you're standing, so the exact location of the pothole can be tracked. Then, users can add a description, and simply hit send.

The 2014 Pothole Blitz should smooth out the ride for drivers, and smooth out the problem blamed for flat tires, busted alignments and maybe a few twisted ankles.

Even though the four-week pothole attack should show major improvement as spring rolls in, the city said crews will continue road work, if needed.
