    PITTSBURGH - Another big pothole blitz took place in Pittsburgh on Monday.

    More than 55 Public Works employees were on the job starting at 6 a.m. to fill the holes.

    This marks the third pothole blitz this year.

    The workers used cold patch because the asphalt plants aren't up and running yet.

    Between January and Friday, a response center has processed almost 13,000 requests, 5,000 for potholes.   Thousands of requests have come via phone and 420 were processed from tweets to @pgh311, the mayor’s office said.

    The neighborhoods that reported the most potholes were Brookline, East Liberty, Shadyside and Bloomfield.
