The Garden City Public Works Department will spend the next several weeks repairing about 137 potholes across town, updating progress online as they go.
This past winter’s heavy snow and freezing temperatures have led to a significant amount of potholes, which may take as much as 250 tons of asphalt to mend, according to a news release from the city. The project is expected to take about a month and a half to complete.
The department has broken the city into six sections and will repair potholes one section at a time, starting with the largest section, six, and then moving forward in numeric order, according to the release. A map of the sections and list of pothole locations can be found on the City of Garden City’s website. Staff will mark potholes repaired on the map throughout the process.
The city asks residents to be aware of repair crews when driving. Roads may be partially closed for a short period of time, according to the release.
Residents are encouraged to report potholes not listed on the spreadsheet or map to Rhonda Griffin by calling (620) 276-1260.
