To combat potholes, cities turn to technology

from PEW

They are a torment for motorists and a costly headache for transportation departments. Every winter and spring, potholes plague city streets and rural roads, causing drivers to curse and public works officials to shudder. That's why some local governments are turning to data and technology to find and fix potholes. Some are even trying to predict where they'll open up. In a growing number of cities, including Omaha, Nebraska; Hartford, Connecticut; and San Diego, residents can download an app for reporting potholes. In Houston, residents can check out the Pothole Tracker app or log on to a website and see graphics and charts showing the city's progress in fixing them. more
