Potholes can form on Rapid City streets any day of the year. They are a common occurrence and the result of traffic and weather conditions on road surfaces, and not the result of a poorly-maintained road.
The City has a Pothole Hotline for residents to call if they notice a pothole. It is 394-4152 and the crews try to get out and repair them the same day or the next day. Major intersections and roads with considerable daily traffic may receive attention in the very late hours or early morning hours to minimize interaction with traffic.
