TULSA, Okla. - Drivers may think it's hard to believe, but City of Tulsa crews have filled more than 52,000 potholes so far this fiscal year, which began July 1, 2013.
More than 34,000 of those were filled since the beginning of 2014.
City leaders say multiple snow and ice storms this winter, along with many freeze-and-thaw cycles, have led to more seasonal potholes.
The average number of calls for pothole repairs to the Customer Care Center in 2014 is around 10 per day. Crews have filled an average 444 potholes per day since New Year's Day, 2014.
Once a pothole is reported that could cause damage to vehicles, crews are required to get potholes filled within 24 to 72 hours.
You can report potholes by calling the City's Customer Care Center at (918) 596 2100.
A work order will then be generated so managers can track progress and make sure all reports are addressed.
