City crews fix 9,000 potholes in Albuquerque since July

The city says crews are busier than ever fixing potholes in Albuquerque. 

Since last July, crews have fixed nearly 9,000 potholes. That’s about 1,000 more potholes than they see on average each year. 

Mayor Tim Keller went out with one of those crews Tuesday to see exactly how they get fixed. Rather than sending crews out on a pothole blitz from time to time, he says crews are now out five days a week to fill them. 

“This is something the city is quite productive and quite good at, yet there are a lot of potholes, especially in the Northeast Heights because of the weather changes. So call them in, give us a chance, we’ll fix them up for you,” Mayor Keller said. 

If you find a pothole, call 311 or use the city’s 311 app to report it.
