COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Officials say city of Columbus workers have fixed nearly 35,000 potholes during the past month.

Pothole patching crews worked for the four weeks ending Saturday in an intensified effort to get the city’s roads back in shape. The final tally was 34,838 potholes repaired.

Prior to that, crews had already fixed more than 55,000 potholes between Jan. 1 and March 22.

Pothole repair will continue throughout the year. In addition to the pothole repairs, the city is spending $33 million to resurface more than 240 streets citywide in 2015.

The extreme cold and snow last winter was especially hard on Ohio roads.
