From now until Friday, residents can call in any reported potholes on city streets, or if one's starting to form. City officials say they see hundreds of them each year especially during the Winter.
Crews plan to fill as many of them as possible before Winter starts.
"It's more advantageous for us to patch potholes before the asphalt plant closes in December," said Owensboro City Manager Bill Parrish. "The hot mix we get from the asphalt plant is in so much better quality than the cold mix we use in the Winter time."
This is the fifth year for the Pothole Blitz. To report a pothole, call the city's action hotline at (270) 687-4444.
