Warwick, RI – Winter hasn’t just been tough on backs, driveways and heating budgets – it’s also been tough on roads, and the city aims to get started on repairs as soon as possible.
If you see or drive over a pothole in one of Warwick’s 400 miles of road on its 1,900 streets, city officials are asking you to call (401) 738-2000 ext.5700 or visit www.warwickri.gov and fill out the Report a Pothole form. Residents are asked to include the name of the street, traffic flow (north, south etc.), nearby cross streets, and landmarks.
When a pothole is reported, the Department of Public Works will contact the Rhode Island Department of Transportation to repair state roads or dispatch crews to repair City streets, according to a release sent to media today from Mayor Scott Avedisian’s office.
“Last month was the snowiest February on record and the cold temperatures have taken their toll on our roads. With the harsh winter weather winding down, it is imperative that we identify potholes and begin patching them,” said Avedisian, “My administration is committed to ensuring that our roads are safe and in good condition. That’s why I established this hotline, and I am calling upon our residents for their assistance.”
