The City of Toronto is planning a pothole repair blitz on Saturday, April 17 to repair as many potholes as possible on Toronto’s major roads, neighbourhood streets, and expressways.
Crews will begin repairing as many potholes as possible starting at 6 a.m. Sat morning. Tomorrow’s blitz will see 32 crews (100 staff) repairing potholes throughout the city. City staff will work a 12-hour shift with appropriate physical distancing measures in place.
The City’s annual coordinated month-long spring clean-up work is also under way. In addition to pothole repairs, residents can expect to see road cleaning and maintenance taking place including ongoing street sweeping, litter pickup and graffiti removal throughout the weekend.
As a result, residents who are driving or biking for essential travel on Saturday are advised to expect delays. The public is asked to be safe by respecting all City crews and work zones and to give crews space while they make Toronto cleaner and safer.
