With the snow now melting in earnest, City workers are out dealing with ponding and potholes.
So far this year, crews have patched over 170 potholes and the count is set to rise as the recent warming trend has melted much of the accumulated snow and ice on the city streets and has unveiled - all at once - a season’s worth of potholes and puddles for residents to navigate.
The warming trend was preceded by a wet autumn in 2020 and a cold snap and heavy snowfall in February that "provided an ideal environment for road deterioration," the City said in a bulletin issued Monday.
Drivers are welcome to notify the City of trouble spots by submitting a service request through the city website, www.princegeorge.ca, emailing email@example.com or dialing 311 within city limits.
They're also encouraged to be extra cautious while going through puddles of meltwater, which can often hide potholes that can result in vehicle damage and personal injury if hit at a high speed.
