Following weeks of snow and ice removal, Delta city crews are now turning their attention to an ever-growing road problem – potholes.
Social media has been abuzz in both South and North Delta with residents posting information about potholes, which are popping up with greater frequency throughout the community.
The Optimist reached out to Delta’s Director of Engineering for an update on the situation.
Here is what Steven Lan told us:
“We certainly have been busy fixing potholes that have arisen following the prolonged cold snap,” said Lan. “We have a dedicated crew working on these road repairs across the city. Residents can either call the city or use the Talk Delta app to report potholes and staff will respond.”
