Potholes

Potholes continue to form in the City of Kawartha Lakes with the varied temperatures during the spring thaw contributing in the weak spots on the roads.

A release from the city says above-average spring runoff and high water tables also add to pothole formation as they allow more water to seep into the cracks and breaks during the spring.

Kawartha Lakes' Public Works staff are patching the roads as a temporary measure to improve safety and driving conditions until more permanent repairs such as resurfacing can occur as the weather improves.

The City says staff repair potholes on a priority basis, determined by the road's  volume of traffic, the size of the pothole and resources available.  

Most are temporarily repaired between four and thirty days.

Residents can report a pothole or other road issues on line through the report it tool, at kawarthalakes.ca  or call the Customer Service at 324-9411.

An information session about roads in the Kawartha Lakes will be held March 19th starting at 10am in the Council Chambers at City Hall in Lindsay.
