Potholes / Street Repair

Pothole RepairCity maintenance crews routinely check older and busy streets for pothole problems and patch them immediately.

Potholes can be reported:
  • Pothole Report Line at 626-307-2585. Listen to the recording and be prepared to provide basic information including location, nearest cross street, your name and telephone number.
  • GoMPK customer service app.

Pavement Management Study


Every few years, the Engineering Division conducts a Pavement Management Study (PMS) to determine which streets need rehabilitation, based on the amount and severity of pavement distresses. Because the number of streets needing rehabilitation exceeds budget money available, only a few selected streets throughout Monterey Park are rehabilitated each year. Depending on the funding sources available, some streets may not be eligible for immediate paving.

Street Repairs


In order to prolong the life of its streets, each year the city applies a seal coating to a portion of its streets. Please view more information on the slurry seal program or Street Resurfacing Map for 2016  online.

The 2016 Street Resurfacing project is partially funded by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) Rubberized Pavement Grant (TRP5-14-0115).  The total number of used tires that was diverted from the waste stream was approximately 17,619 and were all collected and purchased in the State of California.CalRecycle
