Got Pothole? Response times improve more than 50% - ...

Keep reporting them!


            Since beginning the pothole push on April 4, the Street Division has filled 3,579 potholes (through 4/26) and improved average response time from up to 5 weeks to 2 weeks or less. Potholes are prioritized by location, so potholes in the wheel path of highly traveled roads are repaired much quicker than the two-week goal.

            As of today, only 50 pothole requests were remaining on the to-do list, so the City continues to ask the public for its help in reporting potholes. There are several ways citizens can report potholes:

         Call 385-ROAD


         Submit a request online through by clicking on Citizen Request on the left side of the page

            The City of Colorado Springs Streets Division is responsible for maintaining 4,725 miles of street lanes. Streets crews filled 25,249 potholes last year and have filled approximately 5,855 so far this year.
