You may have noticed more potholes on Toronto roads with the milder weather that’s followed the deep freeze.
Many motorists have complained to the city which is responding.
There are usually 25 crews out daily filling potholes, but Saturday there will be 55.

The Gardiner, DVP and main roads are top priority.
”Potholes are a nuisance when driving and biking and can damage tires. Winter takes a toll on our roads, especially when we experience extreme swings in temperatures like we’ve experienced lately,” said Mayor John Tory.
Anyone can report potholes by calling 3-1-1.
So far this month, more than 6,000 potholes have been filled.
That compares with 7,753 during the same period last year.
The city’s repaired an average of 210,500 potholes annually over the last three years.
