• Wintry weather causes more massive potholes around the city

    Updated:

    PITTSBURGH - A giant hole opened up Monday on a North Side street near Martin Luther King Junior Elementary School.

    Channel 11’s Brittny McGraw visited the giant sinkhole on Montgomery Place Monday, and learned road crews are facing challenges with the constantly changing weather.

    Drivers have reported massive potholes all around the Pittsburgh area, including at the intersection of Wilkins and Fifth avenues and the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Canterbury Lane.

    “We call them craters,” one driver said. “They’re huge potholes and we see them everywhere. They’re all throughout the town.”

    Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said City of Pittsburgh Public Works crews are in the middle of another pothole blitz, fixing as many as possible.

    "We have to patch these. So we're doing a lot of overtime. Like I said, these guys, most of the Public Works crews for the past five weeks have worked either six- or seven-day work weeks, and it's only trying to keep up with the problem,” Peduto said.

    The city encourages residents to report potholes by calling 311 or tweeting at @PGH311.
