City Launches Spring Pothole Blitz

PITTSBURGH, PA (April 13, 2021) The City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works is launching its Spring 2021 pothole blitz tomorrow and continuing through the rest of the week, weather permitting. 

DPW crews will be working 12-hour shifts patching potholes citywide from Wednesday through Friday, and may extend their work into Saturday. 

Residents may report potholes to the 311 Response Center by calling 311, 412-255-2621 or by filing an online 311 Request Form.  

The blitz comes in advance of the City’s $16 million 2021 street resurfacing program, which launches next week. 

“We have made record investments into streets citywide the past several years, but after record snowfall this winter our roads still took a beating. Our crews will be doing their best to clear up any problem areas,” Mayor William Peduto said.
