City of Chicago's war on potholes

54, 390 is the number of 311 complaints the city has received about potholes. That’s two and a half times the amount city got last winter. Everybody knows this was a winter for the record books. Today we dedicate this hour to the shared misery we’re all facing with our failed infrastructure. In addition to your calls, NPR Midwest Correspondent David Schaper joins Niala in studio to talk about Chicago's problem with potholes. Tim Graham, owner of Chicago's Top 10 Potholes on Facebook, calls in to give us social media feedback. Also, Gigo Look, office manager at Nal's Auto Repair, gives us the scoop on what mechanics are dealing with. Photo Credit: WBEZ's Chris Hagan Twitter account
