Why was last year such a bad year for potholes?
The 2018-2019 snow season saw a significant number of smaller snow events over shorter periods of time. Because of the multiple rain, snow and ice events, damage to City streets was more severe. These multiple events over short periods of time prevented Public Works from transitioning to temporary repairs with cold-mix. The 2018-2019 season also produced a significant number of freeze-thaw cycles where temperatures were above freezing during the day and below freezing at night. Damage occurs during and after the freeze-thaw cycle. During years with less frequent snow events and freeze-thaw cycles damage is significantly reduced.
