HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (AP) - A group of Detroit-area residents fed up with the crummy condition of certain streets say their efforts to patch potholes have led to repairs on 41 residential blocks.

They started filling potholes in July in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck and were boosted by an online fundraising effort. The Detroit Free Press reports (https://on.freep.com/1OBKPbd ) the group dubbed the Hamtramck Guerrilla Road Crew laid down 36 tons of cold patch over several weekends.

Jonathan Weier, one of those involved in the effort, says that they “sort of pledged ourselves to that initial vision of covering all the pivotal streets.”

Those involved say the patching plan was hatched at a local bar. They made sure the efforts wouldn’t conflict with the city’s roadwork plans.
