Indy to resurface 90 lane miles over next year as Hoosiers complain about potholes

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — As drivers have complained for weeks about the potholes all over Indianapolis, we’re learning about the roads DPW will completely overhaul in the coming year.

There are more than 100 projects that DPW will tackle this year into next. Sometimes it’s a single street; other times it’s several streets in need of attention.

You don’t have to travel far to hear complaints about the streets, especially when it comes to potholes.

“You can’t go to the left or the right because the whole street is tore up,” said Deborah Harris of Indianapolis.   

“I try to drive like a turtle,” she said about going up her street by 42nd and Kessler.

The complaints come even after the city had a multiple day pothole blitz earlier this year, where they filled about 9,000 a day.  

“You can’t even tell,” she said.

Every year the city resurfaces roads, and DPW released this year’s list of about 90 lane miles of road.  DPW couldn’t say whether it’s more or less than typical years that it depends on the yearly budget.

But Hoosiers said they’re excited about the news.

“As soon as they can get out here that sounds good,” she said.  

But they may have to wait. The fixes will happen this spring, summer and potentially into 2019.

DPW said next week there will be another pothole blitz.
