DPW, Mayor Hogsett to launch blitz against city’s potholes

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Department of Public Works and Mayor Joe Hogsett have come together for a plan in attacking the city’s pothole problem.

The pothole “blitz” is a 4-day plan where DPW will call on asphalt manufacturers to start production before spring. This will allow the crews to use the asphalt for pothole patching this week.

Up to 20 DPW crews and three additional contractors will work the streets through Friday, February 2 to combat the potholes.

DPW expects to use 300 tons of hot mix each day to patch potholes.

The targeted roads for patching include but aren’t limited to areas on:

  • Keystone Avenue
  • College Avenue
  • Michigan Road
  • 10th Street
  • Raymond Street
  • 38th Street

The announcement was made Tuesday at 2 p.m.
