MAYOR WALSH DISPATCHES CREWS TO REPAIR POTHOLES, ENCOURAGES RESIDENTS TO REPORT PROBLEM AREAS
BOSTON - Tuesday, February 16, 2016 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced he is dispatching between 15 and 20 crews from the Public Works Department (PWD) to repair potholes across the City. The combination of a dramatic freeze, followed by warmer temperatures and precipitation has made roads especially susceptible to pothole damage.
The Mayor is encouraging residents to report potholes through any of the City's several different platforms, including:
Mobile: download the free BOS:311 app on iOS or Android (previously known as Citizens Connect)
Social media: tweet @BOS311
Phone: dial 3-1-1 (previously the Mayor's 24-hour hotline 617-635-4500. For those with VoIP and for calls from outside Boston, callers should continue to dial 617-635-4500.
PWD spent Monday actively canvassing neighborhoods to evaluate roadways and will begin inspections on Tuesday and continue repair work on Wednesday.
