The City of Bridgeport Resumes Initiative to Fill Potholes and Clear Debris Throughout the City
Bridgeport, CT – With the comeback of spring, the City of Bridgeport Department of Public Facilities will be working on clearing roadways and addressing potholes throughout Bridgeport during the next few weeks.
In addition to repairing and filling potholes, Public Facilities crews will be conducting cleanups in every district of the city that include street-sweeping and illegal dumping pickup.
The City of Bridgeport is asking residents to do their part to keep their neighborhood clean by:
- Picking up nearby litter

With the initiative to fill potholes throughout the City, my hope is that our roads are set for smooth traveling during the seasons that our residents enjoy being on the road the most.”
The City of Bridgeport Department of Public Facilities responds to approximately 1000 pothole patching service requests per year.
