In the next few days our attention is going to switch from cleaning the snow and ice off our streets to patching the potholes left behind.
Maintaining Omaha roads is difficult and city repair crews need our help to make our ride a smooth one.
On Pacific Street, near 120th, it's easy to tell that crews have already been over this road at least once. The patch work is evident and a few potholes have reappeared in the roadway.
Evelyn Taylor takes a different route to work and school and isn't happy with the bone-jarring ride she has most days.
Evelyn Taylor says, "In certain cases they are unavoidable. In general it is more like learning to swerve like around cones or something like that. I've learned to maneuver on certain streets."
On Tuesday Evelyn stopped into the Blue Line Coffee Shop in Dundee for her caffeine fix before heading to class. She shared with Channel 6 News just how bad she thought Omaha's pothole problem is.
Evelyn Taylor says, "My drive to and from work is Cass Street and the potholes are pretty bad I'm surprised they've let them go as long as they have."
Evelyn knows keeping up with the crumbling roadway is a tall order but she was unaware that every driver can help.
Evelyn Taylor says, "I've wondered in certain areas if people complained enough that it would get filled but I didn't know that you could, I don't know much about getting in touch with anybody."
There are actually three ways to report potholes in Omaha: call Public Works at 444-4919, go to the city of Omaha website or download the citysourced app on your smart phone.
