The City of Toronto says it will conduct another major spring pothole repair blitz this weekend.

Depending on the weather, the City said around 40 crews (100 staff) will work a 12-hour shift from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 23 and 24 to fix as many potholes as possible.

“Residents driving or cycling this weekend are advised to expect minor delays around pothole crews,” the City said in a news release. “The public is asked to be safe by respecting work zones and giving crews space while they make repairs.”

The City of Toronto said it has budgeted around $4.4 million for 2022 to fix potholes across the city.

Every pothole costs about $25 to repair, the city said.

Requests to fix potholes can be made through 311. Potholes are prioritized based on size and on major roads first.

The city launched its first pothole repair blitz the first weekend of April.
