The City of Toronto is conducting a weekend pothole blitz

There's some good news coming for anyone who hates potholes (so, everyone, basically). 

The city is conducting a series of "blitz" weekends to fix as many potholes as it can. The first will start tomorrow, and they'll continue through April. 

The freezing weather and quick warmup dance that the city goes through every year always cracks the roads and creates more potholes, making spring a nightmare for drivers. 

The city is confident in its ability to fill potholes, claiming crews can repair between 4,000 and 6,000 per day. The last pothole "blitz" in February saw 5,826 fixed. 

Anyone can call in a pothole to 311, or email 311@toronto.ca. In fact, potholes make up a significant majority of the calls to the city's maintenance branches. 

According to a press release from the city, more than 33,000 potholes have already been filled this year. 

Well, 33,000 down. Only 33 million to go, right?
