The 2014 Pothole Season

Comments Off

Some day the snow will melt and the streets will widen across Minnesota. But, does it matter if the roads are replaced with big holes? There are many near rear end collisions as people slow to navigate the giant’s golf course like terrain.

St. Cloud has set up a hot line to help:

To report potholes from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, residents should call 650-2900. To report after hours, call 650-2949.

Residents should report the location by listing the cross street and avenue and where the problem pothole exists. Callers can use a house number to identify the location.

Potholes on highways, such as Minnesota Highway 23 and U.S. Highway 10, must be reported to Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Minneapolis has it’s own hotline:

But city officials say they are gearing up for battle. Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges urged residents to notify the city about potholes, which are being cataloged, and she promises an aggressive and proactive attack.

St Paul also had a statement:

St. Paul officials say that a plant that makes hot mix for street repair will open March 4, when repair trucks will begin hauling the material out to the worst of the car-eating holes. Crews are currently using a cold patch, which is more of a temporary fix, the Pioneer Press reports.

Anoka County is put together some videos to explain why:

Also what they are doing about them:

The key to it all is to SLOW DOWN. The work crews need room to work and the car in front of you may just be trying to find the road.

Here is something I wrote earlier about making claims:
