Map tracks OKC pothole repairs

by William Crum Published: March 27, 2014

Each year the city of Oklahoma City is tasked with repairing more than 80,000 potholes. A new interactive map created by The Oklahoman’s Madi Alexander and based on data provided by the city enables residents to track repairs, in your neighborhood or across town.

One dot represents a work order completed by the city between July 2012 and June 2013, which means one repair could include multiple potholes along the same stretch of road. Darker shades of red indicate multiple repairs in the same area.

To get an idea of the extent of the damage, zoom in and click on a dot to view the cost of the repair, which can range anywhere from $10 to more than $6,000. Location is accurate to the nearest intersection or street address.

Oklahoma City’s pothole hotline, (405) 631-1111, takes calls on potholes that need filling.

Be prepared with an accurate address, or the closest intersection, so crews can get the work done.

Here’s what the city has to say about how potholes form.
