According to the Mayor’s recent quarterly Roads Report, The city has filled 32,976 potholes this year and filled 39,951 in 2014. The city regularly patches potholes within 48 hours of them being reported. Temporary pothole patching helps create a smoother ride for drivers until more substantive improvements can be made.
A recent report by Andrew Pereira from KITV highlighted our district as the 2nd highest area on our island to have potholes filled. Within the past year, 7,556 potholes in Waianae have been repaired; trailing behind Honolulu’s #1 average of 16,346 potholes that also have been filled.
The City’s Department of Facility Maintenance workers are regularly going out to our district to tend to calls they receive regarding potholes, repairs and maintenance of our roads. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a few of the resources that are readily available to assist you in reporting much-needed infrastructure repairs in our neighborhood, so that our city workers can continue to diligently work to keep our roads safe.
