Crews working to fix winter road damage

St. John's residents are being encouraged to contact Access St. John’s at 311 or (709) 754-CITY (2489) if they see road damage in the city that needs to be addressed.

Pothole repair

The city's department of public works has begun to address road damage caused by a freeze-thaw cycle, as recent weather turned from blizzard and bone-chilling temperatures to rain and mild conditions.

“Water that seeps into small crevices in the road, expands in winter as it freezes and once the roads begin to thaw we start to see the formation of potholes on city streets,” says Coun. Jonathan Galgay, who is chairman of the public works standing committee. 

“We are actively working to fill in the potholes, but I would like to remind residents to please use care and caution when driving.” 

A news release notes the asphalt recycler is in operation at Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to provide the city with material to use in repairing damaged roads. 

City crews have also marked some of the larger potholes which have developed and those will be addressed as soon as possible.
