Pothole repair

How potholes are formed and fixed
How potholes are formed and fixed

Potholes can develop anywhere along our city's 16,000 km of paved streets and 2,900 km of back lanes in Calgary. See an illustration of how potholes are created and how they are repaired.

Repairing potholes is a big part of maintaining Calgary's roads. Work generally begins in April and continues through the summer. Dry pavement and warm weather is needed for a lasting fix. Repairs are completed on a priority basis.

To identify pavement in need of repair, The City inspects major roads twice a month and collector roads once a month. In residential areas, we rely on citizens and City crews to report concerns. Please submit an online service request to report potholes in your community.
