Public Works to repair new potholes Monday

Posted by: KLKN Newsroom

The city of Lincoln’s parking ban is over, but Public Works has another task to take care of: repairing potholes.

City officials say the freeze-and-thaw cycle from the recent snow storms has created new potholes. The most hazardous ones were repaired Friday. The rest will be taken care of starting Monday.

“Our crews are stretched thin today (Friday) with both snow removal and pothole repair operations under way,” said Miki Esposito, Public Works and Utilities Director.  “Maintenance staff will be prepared for an all-out assault on potholes Monday. On behalf of our staff, I want to thank the public for cooperating with our snow removal operations and ask for their patience as we battle the potholes.”
