DeKalb County reports its Roads & Drainage Division has repaired more than 3,600 potholes and 13.84 miles of road so far in 2015.

The county says the number of potholes fixed has more than doubled since the January through May period in which it reported 1,500 potholes had been repaired.

DeKalb County previously reported 700 of the potholes were fixed in April alone as part of the what the county called the 2nd annual Pothole Palooza intensive road infrastructure improvement campaign.

DeKalb County says to report a pothole, call 404-297-3813.

    Great use of $4 Million Dollars of our park money!

    I have to agree with RAJ. While DeKalb is using the bond money we approved for parks and greenspace to fix potholes, it’s claiming it doesn’t have the money to actually develop the parkland it’s purchased. That’s left to volunteers and donations.
    Remember back in 2011, when $40 million of park bond money was spent on general operations?

  • Cities Are Bad

    This sounds like a lot of holes have been filled but it is not. You never hear of any of these cities with numbers that high of holes filled. Keep DeKalb Strong and vote against the cities that want to take so many jobs filling potholes away from people. There are many more to fill and there won’t be enough people to fill them in the small cities.
