STAMFORD, CT - The City will hold Pothole Week on Monday, July 15th through July 22nd. During Pothole Week, residents are encouraged to report potholes to Fix It Stamford ( in preparation for extensive citywide pothole repairs beginning on Monday.

Although residents can report potholes throughout the calendar year, Pothole Week marks when the City begins its pothole repair operations in earnest. Pothole Week helps the City identify all potholes in the City and devotes the resources necessary to fill them in the following weeks, weather permitting. Residents do not need to resubmit reports made earlier in the year.

The City originally planned Pothole Week in April, but was prevented from purchasing asphalt from a local supplier that opens in April due to an anti-fracking ordinance passed by the Board of Representatives. This significantly slowed the efficiency of Stamford’s pothole repairs and resulted in a 60-day backlog of pothole repairs. The Board of Representatives amended the ordinance earlier this month, allowing full operational efficiency of pothole repairs beginning on July 15th. The City plans to dedicate additional resources to pothole repairs on the first day the amended ordinance takes effect to reduce backlog and catch up in the ensuing weeks.

“Now that the City can purchase asphalt locally, we’re gearing up to eliminate this 60-day backlog as soon as possible,” said Mayor David Martin. “Once our local asphalt supplier opens in the spring, our goal is for City crews to fill 90 percent of potholes within five days of when they’re reported. Addressing road conditions has been a priority for my administration and Pothole Week will contribute to my goal to improve our roads.”

Fix It Stamford was launched in July 2018 and allows residents a direct line of communication to the City. Residents can report concerns or issues such as potholes, fallen trees, drainage problems, zoning violations, traffic light outages, request health inspections and much more. Through Fix It Stamford, residents electronically submit requests for City work. When an email address is provided, the resident receives updates on the status of their request. Personal information is not required to use Fix It Stamford.

Pothole repairs will begin on July 15th and continue over the ensuing weeks. Stamford completes pothole repairs year-round, however the City’s local asphalt supplier opens in April and closes in November, creating an eight-month window for intensive pothole repairs.

The City cannot fill potholes when it is raining or snowing. The City does not fill potholes on state roads, but residents can still report potholes on state roads to Fix It Stamford and the City will forward these reports to Connecticut’s Department of Transportation. State roads in Stamford include:

· Connecticut Turnpike (Route 95)

· High Ridge Road (Route 137)

· Courtland Avenue (Route 106)

· West Main Street (Route 1)

· Merritt Parkway

· Cold Spring Road (from High Ridge Road to Washington Boulevard)

· East Main Street (Route 1)

· South State Street (Greenwich to Elm)

· Long Ridge Road (Route 104)

· Washington Boulevard (Cold Spring Road to Route 95)

· Tresser Boulevard (Route 1)
