311 Service Requests - Pot Holes Reported 311 Service Requests - Pot Holes Reported Service Requests
The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) oversees the patching of potholes on over 4,000 miles of arterial and residential streets in Chicago. CDOT receives reports of potholes through the 311 call center and uses a computerized mapping and tracking system to identify pothole locations and efficiently schedule crews. One call to 311 can generate multiple pothole repairs. When a crew arrives to repair a 311 pothole, it fills all the other potholes within the block. Pothole repairs are generally completed within 7 days from the first report of a pothole to 311. Weather conditions, particularly frigid temps and precipitation, influence how long a repair takes. On days when weather is cooperative and there is no precipitation, crews can fill several thousand potholes.
If a previous request is already open for a buffer of 4 addresses the request is given the status of "Duplicate (Open)". For example, if there is an existing CSR for 6535 N Western and a new request is received for 6531 N Western (which is within four addresses of the original CSR) then the new request is given a status of "Duplicate (Open)".
Once the street is repaired, the status in CSR will read “Completed” for the original request and "Duplicate (Closed)" for any duplicate requests. A service request also receives the status of “Completed” when the reported address is inspected but no potholes are found or have already been filled. If another issue is found with the street, such as a “cave-in” or “failed utility cut”, then it is directed to the appropriate department or contractor.
Data Owner: Transportation. Time Period: All open requests and all completed requests since January 1, 2011. Frequency: Data is updated daily.

Requests that have been labeled as Duplicates are in the same geographic area and have been entered into 311’s Customer Service Requests (CSR) system at around the same time as a previous request.

For each request, the following information (as reported by the 311 caller) is available: address location of building; whether building is vacant or occupied; whether the building is open or boarded; entry point if building is open; whether non-residents are occupying or using the building, if the building appears dangerous or hazardous and if the building is vacant due to a fire.

This dataset contains all open 311 reports of one or two lights out on metal poles on a residential or arterial street and all completed requests since January 1, 2011. Whenever CDOT receives a report of a street light outage, the electrician assigned to make the repair looks at all the lights in a group (circuit) to make sure that they are working properly. If two requests regarding the same group are made within 30 calendar days of each other, the newest CSR is automatically given the status of “Duplicate (Open).” Since the electrician will be looking at all the lights in a group to verify that they are all working the “Duplicate (Open)” address will also be observed and repaired. Once the street lights are repaired, the CSR status will read “Completed” for the original request and “Duplicate (Closed)” for any duplicate requests. Data is updated daily.
