The first pothole blitz of 2019 began Saturday in Buffalo.
Nine crews were dispatched throughout the city, including two on Main Street, one on South Park Avenue, one in the Hamlin Park neighborhood and one in the Broadway Fillmore area, according to city spokesman Michael J. DeGeorge. Four other crews worked across the city on various potholes logged into the 311 Call and Resolution Center, he said.
Calls are down from last year. DeGeorge said the city received more than 1,100 calls to 311 for potholes last February. Halfway through this month, 400 had been logged.
Potholes in the City of Buffalo can be reported by calling 311 within the city, 851-4890 outside the city, or visiting the 311 page on the city's website. DeGeorge suggests giving the address or intersection nearest to the pothole.
