There were more than 3,500 unfilled potholes early on Friday, Feb. 2

The City of Indianapolis has set out a mid-winter “pothole blitz,” encouraging residents to report the car-damaging holes and arranging with asphalt suppliers to turn on their systems to generate the “hot mix” longer-lasting asphalt generally applied in the spring.

City officials said the four-day blitz started on Tuesday, Jan. 31. at the intersection of 38th Street and Forest Manor Ave., where Mayor Joe Hogsett put on a safety vest and helped Department of Public Works crews fill the holes.

IndyStar reports that the city last used hot mix for potholes before spring in 2014.

However, the problem appeared to still be unresolved as of early Friday morning, when the city’s “pothole viewer” revealed 3,507 unfilled potholes.
