Spokane announces plan to combat pothole problem

City announces pothole plan (11-16-17)

SPOKANE, Wash.—The city of Spokane revamped its plan to get potholes under control. 

City officials said there are two key changes that they hope will help with the pothole problem.

The first major change was the city bought two new pothole trailers for the 2017 year, according to city officials.

The second change was over the summer, crews used a new technique to do a more all-encompassing repair of a few streets, including Sharp, Sunset Highway, and between Freya and Ray.

Crews used a thinner overlay that they hope will be a more durable solution. To save time and money they've gone from parking bay to parking bay rather than curb to curb.

Reports said the city filled around 4,500 potholes this year. During a normal year the city fills about 2,500 potholes.
