Montgomery Co Conducting 'Intensive Effort' to Fill Potholes

The Montgomery County Dept. of Transportation (MCDOT) said it will be conducting an "intensive effort" on Thursday and over the weekend into the next week to fill the county's potholes.
MCDOT says it repairs portholes every day on numbered routes in the County except during rain and snow. It is adding extra equipment and will use a more durable material, hot mix asphalt, because of the warmer temperatures.
"This has been a rough winter for all of us and particularly for our County roads," Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett said. "While we welcome the warm weather, it does accelerate pothole formation. That's why our Division of Highway Services crews are out in full force to ensure that our roads are in decent shape before another storm hits. I want to thank our staff for their tireless efforts to keep the roads clear of ice and snow and for all they do to repair and maintain our transportation infrastructure."
MCDOT said it relies on resident reports of potholes. Residents can report potholes online or by calling the MC311 Call Center at 311 or 240-777-0311, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
