CLEVELAND, OH – Drivers in Cleveland will soon be able to track when and where crews will be working on pothole repairs. The city plans to launch a new website laying out those details and more by next month.

"I think that would be a really good idea. I really want to try to avoid potholes as much as I can. I definitely don't need to bust a tire or a rim while I’m in school,” said Amanda Jermakow.

She thinks the website will be good for people who may need to plan around repairs on their street.

Drivers can also expect some other changes. The city is switching back to hot asphalt now that the hot asphalt plants have reopened. They were using mostly cold patches and recycled hot asphalt during the winter.

"We'll be operating with about 14 crews every day for the next 60 days, and then what we'll be doing also in that time, we will start our resurfacing program which will also take care of the worse streets in the city,” explained Director of Public Works Michael Cox.

The pothole killers are back out on the roads too.

Cox knows many are frustrated with the amount of potholes and he said they’re working as fast as they can.
