Reza Moghissi is the department’s chief of maintenance and operations. He says holes in the road are a safety hazard to pedestrians, motorists and cyclists.
Moghissi: “Therefore, it’s important to repair potholes whenever they occur, also, the sooner potholes are repaired, the lesser it will cost taxpayers.”
He says the county spends about $2 million a year on potholes. He also points out that for half of Sacramento’s roads it’s been 25 years since they’ve been repaved.
Residents have until this Friday to inform the Department of Transportation of the road holes.
