Chicago DOT works around the clock to repair potholes


Chicago drivers may soon experience a more pleasant commute, thanks to a new approach the city is taking toward potholes.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Friday that the Chicago Department of Transportation will work on filling potholes seven days a week, including football playoff Sundays, reports.

Emanuel noted that 22 crews were already working on pothole repairs the day of his announcement.

The Chicago DOT will have three crews working 10-hour shifts on the weekends and one crew working each night.

To keep costs down, crews will get straight pay with no overtime.
