Winnipeg drivers might soon be feeling some relief from the bumpy rides their vehicles have been providing them with lately.

The city has dispatched its pothole repair crews to target areas where potholes may become a safety issue. Hand-patching crews have been out since last week working on higher speed regional streets, such as Bishop Grandin Boulevard. Patchers were also spotted Monday working on the southbound lanes of Pembina Highway between Chancellor Drive and Markham Road — one of the worst stretches in the city’s south end.

The city says it’s continually monitoring road conditions and making repairs in the most troubled areas as temperatures allow.

Citizens are encouraged to report pothole locations by contacting 311.
