Video: We get the inside scoop on Sudbury's Pothole Patrol

Crews repair more than 50K potholes per year on average

On average, the City of Greater Sudbury repairs between 50,000 to 60,000 potholes a year.

That's a tall order even for 10 to 15 crews, made up of city employees as well as contractors, working each day during pothole season. 

With so many potholes, how does the city decide which get filled first? Can these patches withstand the current freeze-thaw conditions until more permanent repairs can be done in the summer?

Watch the video above as new media reporter got the inside scoop on what the City of Greater Sudbury is doing to return our roads to working order.
