With the amount of rain we have experienced this month, there will be an increase in potholes. Cars pass through streets and roadways all day, every day. Tiny imperfections are formed and the pavement eventually cracks over time. When it rains, water penetrates the surface and weakens the ground underneath.
During wet weather, the City of Garland Street Department cannot repair potholes using hot-mix asphalt. During these periods, the crews use other products to make emergency repairs at potentially hazardous locations. Please be patient as we respond to each request. The Street Department will work diligently to address these issues.
