Pothole repairs are one of the responsibilities of the Streets Division. Potholes develop when water enters a crack in the pavement, and then freezes and thaws several times until the pavement around the crack finally expands and weakens, and eventually breaks away.
Potholes seemingly sprout everywhere in the late winter and early spring. While street crews work diligently trying to keep these new potholes filled with asphalt until permanent repairs can be made, they cannot possibly know where all the potholes are. In fact, we rely heavily upon citizens to call us with these new pothole locations.
If you would like to report a pothole, please call the Streets Division at 962-2524 or Report a Concern online with a detailed description of the pothole's location. We'll then make every effort to get the pothole filled within 48 hours.
Rough riding manholes are one of the Project Engineering’s Street Maintenance Program responsibilities. Every year approximately 25 to 30 manholes are repaired to provide for a better ride. Unlike potholes, manholes require more time to repair as the iron frame and cover have to be removed from the surrounding pavement, re-leveled with shim’s then grouted and then patched back with asphalt pavement. This repair may take in excess of 2 hours to complete with major disturbance to the traveled way. City of Loveland specifications require that a manhole be placed no more than 1/4" to 1/2" below the paved surface. This minimal depression of the manhole may still be felt by the traveling public but is necessary to provide clearance for snow plowing operations.
If you want to report a rough riding manhole, please call the Street Division at 962-2524 or Report a Concern online with a detailed description of the manholes location.
The Streets Division has the responsibility of maintaining the City's 198 blocks of alleyways. Most of these alleys have a gravel surface which occasionally becomes rough and rutted, and needs to be re-graded again with the City's motor grader.
If your alley is in need of maintenance, please call the Streets Division at 962-2524.
