OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert's office says new pothole repair reports are consistently declining. Crews fixed more potholes in the past week than the number of potholes being reported to the Mayor's Hotline.

Crews repaired 6,020 potholes while the city received 3,175 new pothole reports from April 4-11, according to a new repair report released Friday.

It took roughly 843 tons of asphalt to fix the roads.

High-traffic streets and intersections remain the priority. City and contractor crews are also now working on residential neighborhoods.

Omahans should report potholes to the Mayor's Hotline at 402-444-5555 or e-mail hotline@cityofomaha.org. The mayor's office prefers citizens submit reports via phone or e-mail instead of through social media, so they can be promptly reported to the Street Maintenance Division for repair.
