Port Coquitlam ramps up for second annual pothole blitz

Port Coquitlam ramps up for second annual pothole blitz

PORT COQUITLAM, B.C. – The City of Port Coquitlam, B.C. is getting ready for a second pothole blitz on March 26 and March 27.

The annual blitz aims to keep the community’s roads and neighbourhood streets in good repair through rapid repairs throughout the area weather permitting.

Two city crews (approximately eight staff members) will work two consecutive days from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to repair as many potholes that have been identified, a release said.

To date crews have inspected 100 per cent of the city for potholes in two separate inspection sessions through proactive daily patrols throughout the last few months to identify and repair potholes.

They will be incorporating gravel shoulders into their pothole repairs efforts. The pothole repair blitz crews are made up of the same city staff who handle road maintenance, snow clearing, street sweeping and other maintenance and roadway safety work.

Crews have already repaired 230 potholes since Jan 1., the release said. In 2023, the city repaired 158 potholes during the three-day blitz.

Potholes can normally be repaired within four days of crews being made aware through proactive patrols and service requests from residents. When there are large numbers of potholes to be repaired, the release said, they are triaged based on size and repairs are prioritized on major roads first as these routes typically experience higher volumes of traffic and are essential for efficient transportation across the city.
