Emergency pothole repair is underway in the City of Binghamton.

Mayor Richard David has announced the warmer weather is allowing for temporary fixes on the with City streets, starting with Riverside Drive.

Part of Prospect Street is to be milled and filled with help from the New York State Department of Transportation.  David says the major fix is adjacent to the Prospect Mountain project being done by the state.

The City Department of Public Works is working with the DOT Engineer in Charge to address the condition of Prospect and milling is expected January 15 on the area from the new highway interchange under construction to Mygatt Street.  That section is to be paved January 16.

The Mayor says the DOT is also expected to fill potholes from Mygatt Street east to Front Street and continue to fill holes in that section through the winter.

David says working with the state will help minimize the cost to local taxpayers.

Also to be addressed this week are the potholes on Conklin Avenue.
