City crews will be making emergency pothole repairs throughout the city beginning Monday, Aug. 8, to address the impact of recent rains on pothole conditions on major streets. The work is expected to take at least a week, with crews working on two streets at a time.
During this time, travelers should expect delays. The work is expected to take at least week and work hours will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. During this time, a rolling work zone will be in place with streets with three or more lanes reduced to one lane for worker safety. Specific traffic impacts and locations will be posted on Cone Zones at boulderconezones.net.
While city crews typically manage pothole repairs on a regular schedule during early morning hours, the number of potholes needing repair has exceeded typical capacity. So far this year, the city has received 591 requests, while a total of 550 were received in 2021, with recent rains worsening pothole conditions.
“We appreciate community members’ patience as we make these repairs,” said Transportation Maintenance Manager Scott Schlecht. “Focusing our efforts this way will enable our crews to tackle a much higher number of potholes more quickly.”
