Last month, crews filled 21,392 potholes, compared to 26,054 potholes in December 2009. City officials credit the decline to more street-resurfacing projects (a benefit of the stimulus plan) and a decrease in freeze/thaw cycles. They also stressed that pothole patching crews are working as hard as ever, lest we get the wrong impression, apparently.
