City of Tampa Makes Great Progress in Repairing Potholes and Cave-ins

11/10/15

Over the last few months, due to record setting rainfall over the Summer, the City has been working day and night to fill potholes and cave-ins. Since late July the city has repaired 4,046 potholes with 225 still in queue for repair, that’s compared to the 1,918 potholes repaired during the same time period in 2014. We’re also making great progress in repairing wastewater cave-ins and, as of August 1st, the city has repaired 513 wastewater cave-ins with 88 left in queue.

“Thanks to the great residents of this City for using our reporting system to ensure we have firsthand documentation of these potholes and cave-ins, you are the eyes and ears out in your neighborhoods and provide a great service by streamlining this process,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn. “This city’s infrastructure is a top priority of mine as well as my staff and we will continue to work around the clock to make sure our roads are passable and open in record time.”
