Department Commissioner Rebekah Scheinfeld says the strategy will address potholes on city streets that affect the most people.

City crews have filled about 240,000 potholes so far and expect to fill 25,000 more potholes this month. Six crews added recently bring the total to 30 pothole crews working at once.

Chicagoans can report potholes by calling 311.
