Manhattan Public Works crews are continuing to patch potholes.
That’s City Engineer Brian Johnson speaking with KMAN Wednesday afternoon. He says roughly 300,000 pounds of patch material was put onto Manhattan roadways in January. When temperatures are so cold the bonding material being used, doesn’t adhere to existing potholes but should improve as temperatures continue to warm up.
City officials noted Wednesday that the southbound lane of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd is closed until further notice from Colorado south to Fort Riley Blvd. The outside eastbound lane of Bluemont Ave. from Juliette east to the 4th Street roundabout is also closed for pothole repairs.
Residents needing to report an issue can use the Report It app on the City of Manhattan website.
