After weeks of plowing and salting, potholes are covering many roads in Lexington.

Road crews said this winter hasn’t been easy on them or the roads.

Today they were clearing snow, ice and tree limbs from the streets – and also focusing on repairing the potholes.

“From water damage to salt velocity of traffic, deteriorating streets – this all contributes to the potholes developing,” Keith Martin, Lexington’s Pothole Repair Supervisor, said.

Martin said they fix the holes when they come across them. However, they’re also asking for the public’s help.

“We don't know where they're at, unless the public calls in and gives us their location,” he said.

The number to call to report a pothole on a Lexington city street is LexCall 311 or 859-425-2255.

“If I have the work order on it and it hasn't been fixed within the 48 hour time frame, then we're liable for it,” Martin said.

He said they work very hard to get the potholes filled in that 48 hour timeframe so they won’t have to pay out a lot of claims and cars don't get damaged.

This only applies for city roads and doesn’t include state streets like Man ‘o War Boulevard, Versailles Road or New Circle Road.
