BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport officials say the winter has left an estimated 10,000 potholes throughout the city, and they are urging the public to report them.

Mayor Bill Finch says public works crews filled close to 2,500 gaps in the city roads in March, averaging about 200 holes per day. They have been using a material called “cold patch,” which acts as a temporary and quick fix in an effort to avoid tire damage for drivers. 

Public works officials used about 150 tons of cold patch, but will soon begin repairing large sections of roadway with hot asphalt.

Finch says residents can report potholes using the city's BConnected smartphone app, or they can call the city's BConnected number.
