Bridgeport, Conn. (March 24, 2015) – As part of Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch’s continued efforts to make Bridgeport better every day, public works crews have been repairing roads and fixing potholes throughout Bridgeport following an incredibly difficult winter that wreaked havoc on the city’s streets. Bridgeport has once again enlisted the Pot-Hole Killer, an innovative system that is quicker, safer and more environmentally friendly than traditional crew-based efforts to help repair roads in the Park City.  

 

Along with the Pot-Hole Killer, Bridgeport is also using a Durapatcher, a pothole repair solution that uses spray injection technology. Durapatcher is a cost efficient and effective repair method that allows you to fill more potholes in a day with less labor.

 

“In Bridgeport, we’re using innovative technologies to repair our roads quicker and more efficiently following a long, difficult winter making our streets safer for those who live and  work in the city,” said Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch. “Bridgeport is getting better every day, thanks in large part to the efforts of our crews who are working hard to improve our roads.”

So far this season, crews have already repaired nearly 2,000 potholes.

Residents can report a pothole directly to the city’s Roadway Maintenance department using the BConnected smartphone app, calling the BConnected hotline at (203) 576-1311 or online at www.bridgeportct.gov/bconnected.
