|Last week's Uptown potholes-no-more|
The city says it's patched more than 50,000 potholes in 2014, each one a request from a resident through the City website or a 311 call. The city's come up with an app that shows the past seven days of pothole repairs.
If you go to http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/cdot/dataset/potholetracker.html, you can hover over each blue dot to get information showing the service request number, the date of the completed work and the total number of potholes repaired on each block.
If you have a particular nemesis amongst the potholes -- and Lord knows there are plenty to choose from -- report it to 311 and see how much time it takes to be filled. With the temps set to drop below zero again next week, what else do you have going?
