NORFOLK-- Crews are hitting Norfolk city streets and aggressively filling potholes now that the weather has warmed up.

The repair work follows the pothole debacle on I-264 back in February. The city wants to make sure they avoid a similar problem.

All month long extra, resources will be on the streets filling in potholes with a permanent, hot-mix asphalt.

The city says they're hoping more people will report potholes when they're spotted so crews can stay busy.

"The cold days are behind us and now we have a lot of dry days. Those are the conditions we need to fill potholes," said Norfolk spokeswoman Jeneen White.

Officials say there are three ways to report a pothole on city roads:

1.    Call the Department of Public Works at 823-4050
2.    Email Public Works at pworks@norfolk.gov
3.    Visit www.norfolk.gov and click on the “Request Tracker” link

The city asks you to please include a description of the pothole and the nearest address and cross street in your report.
