This winter has Roanoke city crews working hard to repair our streets.
According to Roanoke City Streets Manager Dwayne D’Ardenne potholes are repaired all year long, but they tend to see more this time of the year as the weather starts to get warmer.
The city currently has three crews designated to fixing the streets and they've already repaired more than 6,000 potholes since January.
D’Ardenne said that's five times more than what they did last year. He said the salt and brine used during the winter always plays a big factor in the road conditions.
"This winter has been incredibly difficult for a lot of folks, but the guys are doing a great job,” he said. “Our goal is to complete pothole requests within 7 days right now we are 96 % adherence to that."
The city of Roanoke fixed about 2,000 potholes last year. At this rate, they expect to fix 10,000 this year.
