Pothole Blitz starts Tuesday

With spring arriving in Fort St. John, the city’s pothole patching is now well underway.

Fort St. John’s Director of Public Works and Utilities says the steaming (melting) has already been going on for a couple of weeks, as the city prepares for a two-week blitz beginning next Tuesday (April 14th).

Don Demers says crews will prioritize which parts of town get the attention first. [asset|aid=1209|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=8abf11c5330f182ff550eeeff8a36bb7-Don-priorities_1_Pub.mp3]

Demers says even after the two-week blitz, the resurfacing will continue throughout the summer, as crews work to fill all of the city potholes with an emulsified asphalt compound.

He says the city will keep track of which and how many potholes have been filled, to give residents an idea of just how many potholes are out there.

To report a pothole, call the city at 3-1-1, or call Moose FM’s Pothole Patrol, at 250-787-2222.
