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.
City officials encourage residents to call the City's Pothole Hotline at 394-4152 to report a pothole for crews to repair.
"Our crews try to get out and repair them the same day or the next day," according to City Street Superintendent Dale Pfeifle. "We patrol the streets and work to repair potholes and also rely on the public's help to notify us if they have a pothole in their neighborhood or on a City street they travel."
Pfeifle says 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.
