Expansion of Pothole Repairs

City Dedicates Additional Resources to Pothole Repairs

Through a major expansion of the City’s pothole repair program, crews will work to fill thousands of potholes that developed during heavy rains in early 2019.

“Our roads took a beating from repeated storms so we’re going to take advantage of this dry spell to fill as many potholes as we can,” Mayor Kevin Faulconer said. “We’ve heard San Diegans loud and clear and we’re making this a top priority. That means more crews in every neighborhood filling more potholes than ever before.”

The City typically fills about 30,000 potholes each fiscal year. This fiscal year crews have fixed 25,000 and counting in less than nine months – on pace to far exceed a typical year.
