Operation Pothole this Weekend

The city is running “Operation Pothole” this weekend, January 8-9, to fill potholes caused by the recent rain storms. City crews are on the lookout for potholes, but don’t assume they will drive the same route you do. Call 3-1-1 so our crews know exactly where fixes need to be made.

The Bureau of Street Services will deploy approximately 50 crews on Saturday and Sunday to repair an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 potholes before they cause traffic accidents, car damage, or grow larger and require more substantial repair. The crews will be focused on neighborhoods south of Mullholland on Saturday and in the San Fernando Valley on Sunday.

My office is handling more than 150 pothole reports. Click here to view a list of the potholes we are making sure are repaired. Click here to download a .csv file.
