If only we had Brad Pitt as one of our staff members, we'd solve this forever!
We're talking about potholes. Well, pavement failures of all sorts, really. It's what our maintenance guys spend thousands of hours each year combating, and we can use your help to do it.
Here's the deal: we don't have anyone to just drive around to find problems. We don't have sensors in the roadway to alert us of issues. We rely on folks to tell us where there are problems. We do have a department policy where, as full-time employees, we are asked to report any issues we see in our own driving. With hundreds of employees in the San Antonio region, this gives us decent coverage.
You might see something we don't, however. So if you do see something, help us out! Give us a call and report a pothole or other pavement issue, and we'll put it on our list to be addressed immediately. Here's what you'll need before you dial the phone:
- Highway you saw the issue on
- Direction you were driving (N, S, E or W)
- Nearest cross streets
- Which lane you were in (left, right, center)
- Nature of the issue you saw
If it's not a state-maintained road, reach out to the good folks with the city in which you're traveling or your county. They're likely in the same boat we're in, trying to catch up and keep up with the damage from such deluges as we've seen this year.
Oh, yeah ... here's our number:
