Petersburg Begins City-Wide Pothole Blitz


2018 Petersburg Pothole Blitz!

Petersburg Department of Public Works and Utilities has begun its war on City Potholes.  This project will cover all 7 Wards in the City. Crews will travel throughout the City aggressively attacking this issue over the next four weeks.

“Resident engagement is the most important part of this campaign. If you see a pothole, take note of the street name and landmarks. If possible, take a picture and report it to the City,” says Public Works and Utilities Director, Tangela Innis. “Our goal is to dedicate the necessary time and resources to ensure the safety of our streets.”

The Pothole Blitz will run continuously from February 28 – March 28, as the weather permits. Crews filled 186 potholes during the first day and are expected to repair up to 1,000 potholes overall.   

Potholes can be reported by:

  • Calling Petersburg Streets Department at (804) 733-2415
  • Clicking “Report a Concern” from the City’s website homepage
  • Downloading the GoGov App found in the App Store and Google Play Store
