In the absence of precipitation in the coming days, the Public Works Street Division is increasing the number of crews dedicated to this spring’s pothole repair efforts.
“It has been a rough winter for our city streets,” says Mark Cotter, Director of Public Works. “The current condition of our streets has prompted us to take a more aggressive approach to our annual spring pothole repair efforts.”
To increase its emphasis on patching potholes, Street crews will be working the following adjusted work schedule for the next three weeks:
Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Public Works will have a minimum of six crews addressing potholes.
Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to midnight and from midnight to 8 a.m.: Public Works will have a minimum of one crew addressing potholes in high-traffic volume areas.
Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Public Works will have a minimum of three crews addressing potholes.
The public can submit requests for pothole repairs via the City’s OneLink mobile app or by calling the City’s Pothole Hotline at 605-367-8002.
The app is available for free for Apple and Android devices. Search for “City of Sioux Falls” in Google Play or Apple App Store.
