#7PotholePledge: Working to fix our roads

(WXYZ) - As roads in southeastern Michigan are getting worse and the frustrations of drivers is boiling over, Action News is leading an unprecedented war on potholes.

Mayors and city managers across the area are taking the Channel 7 Pothole Pledge, establishing pothole hotlines and promising to fill reported potholes within 48-72 hours.

"City leaders have embraced the Channel 7 Pothole Pledge beyond our imagination,” says Action News reporter Simon Shaykhet, who’s having each mayor or city manager sign a symbolic road construction barrel. “It’s a great example of how we can all work together to tackle an epic problem – and how an idea can grow. We were inspired to do this by the city of Taylor.”

Taylor Mayor Rick Sollars recently announced the city would map reported potholes online and repair them in 48 hours. Residents can report trouble spots via phone, email and Facebook.
