INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 21, 2016) – The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) is ready to permanently patch potholes in the city as hot asphalt plants are scheduled to open Monday.

DPW will have 21 crews working overtime through Thursday of this week to remain ahead of pothole requests using a hot asphalt mix and are encouraging residents to use the Indy Pothole Viewer, RequestIndy, or the Mayor’s Action Center to report potholes in the Indianapolis area.
