The War on Potholes Has Started in Brandon

Manitoba PostNews

BRANDON, MB – The snow has been cleared from Brandon streets allowing City staff to begin the attack on the growing number of potholes.

City crews are currently using a temporary winter asphalt and tar mixture to fill potholes until more consistently warm temperatures arrive, then they will switch to using the City’s in-house asphalt reclaimer and asphalt pre-mix heater to patch potholes.

The City is asking motorists to help and report problem potholes by calling Brandon’s 24-hour Pothole Hotline at 204-729-2200. You can also report problem potholes online at the City’s website, click here.

The City also said in a release that a number of roads within City limits, including Victoria Avenue, Richmond Avenue, First Street, and 18th Street (including the bridges), are the responsibility of the Province and do not fall within Brandon’s pothole patching program.

You can report a pothole or unsafe driving condition on a Provincial roadway by calling 1-866-MANITOBA (1-866-626-4862).
