Road crews fixing Columbia potholes after winter storm


Columbia Public Works and Missouri Department of Transportation crews were out on the roads Tuesday fixing potholes caused by winter weather and snow.

After the winter weather this weekend crews from both organizations responded to complaints about potholes submitted by the public.

MoDOT focused on fixing the two roads that received the most complaints, Stadium Boulevard and Route B/Paris Road, while Columbia Public Works worked on potholes that had already been identified and any others they found on those streets.

Melanie Blacklock, MoDOT's assistant supervisor for Columbia, said people can check the MoDOT traveler's map to see which roads are MoDOT's responsibility.

"I always tell people MoDOT roads are letters and numbers," Blacklock said. "So Stadium, we call it Stadium but it's also known as 740 by MoDOT. Providence ... Rangeline, 763. So anything with a letter or a number you can be pretty certain it's with MoDOT."

Both MoDOT and Columbia Public Works advise people to continue filing pothole complaints by calling Columbia Public Works at 573.874.2489 or MoDOT at 1-888-ASK-MODOT.
