The city is hoping to fill about 5,000 potholes over the next 10 days in their second pothole-filling blitz of the winter. A third is planned for the spring.
Executive committee member Anie Samson says the city spends about $125,000 a year on pothole operations.
But she adds that Montreal's up and down weather makes the job of keeping city streets in decent shape ongoing - and expensive.
The city will prioritze main arteries and thoroughfares, and get to smaller streets when it can.
But it is urging residents to contact the city by calling 311 if they see any new potholes on their streets.
Two outside contractors have been hired to do the job. Neither have been named at the Charbonneau Commission.
