POTHOLE REPAIR POLICY


Introduction 

  1. The City of Cañon City believes it is in the best interest of the residents to patch potholes as rapidly as possible. This applies to city streets and alleys.
     
  2. Under normal conditions, potholes are addressed and scheduled within 72 hours depending on certain circumstances, also dependent on other projects being worked on as well as weather conditions.  

Criteria for Pothole Repair

  1. Location
    • In a driving lane or parking lane.
    • On an arterial versus residential street versus an alley.
    • Traffic volumes and speeds.
    • The presence of pedestrian traffic or bike lanes.
    • All things being equal, the general priority for repair work is arterial streets first, residential streets second, and then alleys. 
  2. Condition
    • How likely a pothole is to cause vehicular damage, personal injury or severe disruption to traffic?
    • The number of potholes reported in certain sections of roads or number of complaints received regarding a particular pothole.
