PHOTOS BY HEATHER N. GRIMMER/CONTRIBUTOR - Potholes on city streets, like
these ones on Locust Street, are in large supply today. But their numbers should start to 
dwindle starting Monday when the city begins a "pothole blitz."

The daily commute in the City of Lockport is going to get a lot smoother starting Monday.

Mayor Anne McCaffrey told the Common Council on Wednesday that city workers will be out in force repairing potholes on the hardest hit city streets. The expected two-week long blitz will use everyone from the city's streets departments.

To start, crews will be focusing on the streets with the most traffic — Lincoln Avenue, Davison Road, Locust, Main, Pine, South Transit and Willow streets. Less traveled streets will be attended to once the major ones are taken care of.

It's expected that three rotating crews will be able to do all the work without incurring any overtime.

It was announced earlier that the city has an extra $53,000 with which to fill potholes and repair streets thanks to a late addition to the state budget for emergency road repair.
