Lincoln is doubling down on its year-round effort to fill potholes as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird says so far the city has used 235,000 pounds of filling material …enough to complete 5,500 repairs. Lincolnites are asked to help by letting them know where they see potholes.
Lincoln residents are urged to help the city in its efforts by reporting potholes they encounter as they travel around the city.
Potholes and other non-emergency street problems can be reported in three ways:
- Download the free UPLNK app for their phones at lincoln.ne.gov or in the iOS or Android stores. For the last two years, Lincoln has been one of the top ten cities of its size in closing cases that were reported on the app. In 2019, more than 16,000 cases reported on UPLNK were resolved. More than a third of those were for pothole repair.
