Pothole patrol flat out

Kelowna's pothole patrols are working overtime to try to stay ahead of reports of tire-damaging road craters.

"Staff received over 100 calls and online messages Wednesday from residents, and we had three crews working 16-hour shifts to try to get to the backlog," said City of Kelowna roadways operations supervisor Stephen Bryans.

"We prioritize based on the size and location of the potholes. It's a safety issue."

Pothole season normally peaks later in the winter, but this year's early freeze-thaw cycle has produced a larger number of potholes. Kelowna residents can report potholes here.

Potholes on provincial routes, highways 33 and 97, can be reported through DriveBC.
