City of San Antonio shows off high-tech pothole repair truck
SAN ANTONIO The city of San Antonio on Thursday showed off a new high-tech pothole repair truck that officials claim is more efficient. The traditional pothole repair truck with two crew members takes an average of 20 minutes to repair a single pothole. The new truck can fill up to 100 potholes daily, or three potholes in less than 5 minutes, officials said. The citys Public Works Department has four new trucks and 12 traditional trucks in its fleet. If residents report a pothole to 3-1-1, the Pothole Patrol guarantees the pothole will be repaired within two business days, officials said.
