Starting Monday morning the Department of Public Works will repair the potholes Pittsburgh residents have been complaining about.

“Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – basically the last three days, we get hot mixed asphalt for the city streets,” said Chief Operations Officer Guy Costa. “So what we want to do is do the splits and ask people to call the 311 number, if they haven’t already, so we can respond to it in the next three days.”

This week’s forecast should be perfect for crews to fix the holes.

About 30 trucks will hit the streets over the next few days.

They’ll be focusing on many secondary streets. Costa says many of the city’s main roads have been well tended.
