Davenport Still Has Hundreds of Potholes Left To Fill
If you find yourself still dodging potholes around the QC, there's a reason for that- despite filling 4,300 street blocks over the last few months, Davenport public works still have 500 to get to, according to the QC Times.
Last year, crews repaired half as many blocks. The reason behind the high number of potholes this year is pretty obvious- the harsh winter temps combined with constant rain. Not only has the weather created more potholes than normal, but it's been tough for crews to permanently patch the roads when work is constantly washed away.
Luckily, work is ongoing now that the Mississippi has finally fallen below flood levels, with nine work crews out repairing this week. The city prioritizes roads with the biggest potholes and most traffic, so don't be surprised if your side street or alley is still full of cracks and craters.
