Salisbury Seeks Public Help to Fix Potholes


SALISBURY, Md.- Got potholes? The answer is ‘yes,' and Salisbury is no exception. After an especially brutal winter, roads all across the area have been plagued by potholes. The City of Salisbury is working to get them filled, and counting on residents to help them out. As with everything these days, there's an app for that.

It is a sure sign of spring. Not the blossoming daffodils but the potholes in full bloom.

“I've been living here about six years now, and they've always been an issue, but this year it seems to be one of the biggest issues,” said Andres Zunun of Salisbury.

Zunun found out the hard way just how bad potholes can be.

“Going off on the turns, some tend to go like steep and then come right back up, and I messed up my transmission on the Monte Carlo about December,” he explained. “And now it's like $2,000 to replace it, to get it fixed.”

“I don't like them very much,” noted Shaunna Price of Salisbury.

Shaunna, we're with you on that. And so is the City of Salisbury.

See a pothole, call it in. Or better yet, report it right on your smartphone through the City Mobile Device App.

“They can't have somebody on every street, so if people that live in the areas can report it to them, then they have a better idea of what's there,” said Price.

Over the past two weeks, the city said crews have patched up 1,350 potholes. That is just in Salisbury. According to Mayor Jim Ireton, once the weather gets warmer, repairs will be made with heated paving material.

If you would like to report a pothole on city streets, call (410) 548-3177. Information on downloading the City Mobile Device App can be found by clicking here.
