Wheaton road crews to start filling potholes Monday

WHEATON – The Wheaton Public Works Department will start patching potholes Monday, according to a city news release.

Crews will undertake the roadwork from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily until potholes throughout the city have been filled.

"This winter has produced some dramatic weather, which unfortunately creates the right conditions for potholes to form," said Street Superintendent Mike Wakefield in the release.

The city will first address main thoroughfares, then secondary and residential streets, and finally cul-de-sacs and dead ends. The patches will be temporary, as crews require warmer temperatures to perform permanent repairs using new asphalt.

Wakefield asked drivers to be cautious near crews at work.

Residents can report a pothole on the city's website at www.wheaton.il.us/request or by calling 630-260-2116.
