TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - With the sun shining and temperatures a little warmer, city crews were out filling some potholes.
Crews were repairing Manhattan Boulevard headed East toward Summit Street.
13 crews were out Wednesday all over the city to fix nearly 400 holes that have been reported through Engage Toledo.
Crews are sent out to the larger orange barrel holes first and they fill whatever they see on that stretch of road.
"If you look at the piece of my car that's fallen down because of the potholes, I'll be glad that they get it all fixed so we don't keep losing stuff," Polish Village resident Roger Siegworth said.
Sharon Davenport works at the American Legion post on Manhattan Boulevard and is grateful that city crews were hard at work Wednesday.
"It's good to see the city taxes being put to work," Davenport said. "Especially on Manhattan where we have our post, our American Legion post, and it really makes a difference for people to get here without ruining their cars."
These hardworking men and women are Toledo residents who have the same concerns that we do. They are on 10 hour shifts during the daylight hours from now through at least Saturday, as long as the weather is good.
The Ohio Department of Transportation has a team that patrols during these freeze-thaw cycles that was out Wednesday as well, although regionally, they had far less work to do.
Taking advantage of the warmer weather, the city will also be picking up hopefully what is left of the leaves this weekend.
After leaf removal is complete, they will send out sweeper trucks to help clean up the rest.
If you have a pothole to report, call Engage Toledo at 419-936-2020.
