ATLANTA, Ga. (CW69 News at 10) — A race is underway to fill potholes around Downtown Atlanta before the marathons this weekend.
Officials say crews will be pounding the pavement ahead of Saturday’s U.S. Olympic Team Trials and Publix Atlanta Marathon on Sunday.
The Atlanta Track Club says thousands of runners are participating between the two events. They’re working with the City of Atlanta’s Public Works Department to make sure runners have a smooth, safe surface to run on.
Officials say they have filled more than 10,500 potholes since launching the Fix-It ATL initiative, urging people to report any potholes around the city to ATL311.
There are several road closures expected over the weekend during the marathons.
