On average it takes approximately 24 hours of notification to fill the typical pothole. Some potholes, because of their location in the road or proximity to other infrastructure such as manhole covers, are more difficult to fill and, consequently, take longer. The Public Works Department crews work to cover 550 lane miles of public roadway in the City of Framingham. Many times, when a crew goes to repair 1 pothole, they find several others in the same area. A single crew typically repairs 90 potholes a day.
