Mayor calls on residents to report potholes on Bronx roads

Despite the wet weather, crews were out filling potholes around the Bronx Monday. Winter may be over but it's left behind lots of obstacles for Bronx drivers. Department of Transportation (DOT) crews are working overtime to give drivers a smoother ride. But with more than 6,000 miles of city roads to pave, DOT workers cannot do it alone. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is asking residents who see a pothole on their street or in their neighborhood to report it by calling 311. This will cut down work for DOT workers when trying to locate pothole. DOT crews filled nearly 2,000 potholes citywide in the last year. They say by 2006, more than 900 miles of lanes will be repaved around the city every year.
