Map of the day: Potholes patched this past week

April 17th has been proclaimed the start of paving season. But even in the paving off-season, city crews have been hard at work filling potholes on the Chicago’s 3,800+ miles of streets (albeit with varying success).

If the weather cooperates, crews can fill several thousand potholes in one day.

Luckily, the city plots these filled potholes on maps, which you can sort through in a variety of ways.

Here’s what they’ve done in just the past week.

Check out the whole map here.
