TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
With the freeze-thaw cycle
weather this time of year, the City of Toledo is doing its best to keep up with
potholes, which seem to show up everywhere. They are also doing a lot to try to
The city has stepped up
its crews doing crack sealing to help stop potholes before they happen.
"We've been doing some
what we call ‘pothole prevention,' and being aggressive and doing the crack
sealing out there on the roads," said David Pratt, streets, bridges and harbor
commissioner. "That's actually helped, I think, keep pothole numbers down, so

Since January 1, the city
has filled 12,000 potholes.
"Last year, we filled over
50,000 potholes, but the year before, we filled over 60,000," Pratt said. "That
tells me that the crack sealing is working, we are reducing the number of
potholes. Different divisions are working together so that we can try to keep
reducing that number."
But while the city is
doing its best to keep up, an east Toledo company says they're seeing more
customers come in because of potholes.
"It's not just tire
repair," explained Fadi Ramaden, service man at Accutech Automotive. "It's
suspension problems I've seen, too…this year more than last year, actually,
that customers complain about."
The city wants drivers to
report any potholes they see. Call 419-936-BUMP to report it to crews.
