INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Department of Public Works is beginning its second pothole blitz of the season Monday.
DPW says it will be using 20 crews, as well as contractors, to fill thousands of potholes across the city through Friday. Workers will tackle as many potholes they can between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The last pothole blitz was from Jan. 30-Feb. 2, where thousands of potholes were filled. But if you've driven on the roads since then, you'd know the roads are still bad.
Here's where Monday's crews will spend their time:

In areas where many potholes are located in the same section of the street, the DPW will use strip patching, which removes and replaces pavement up to 9 inches in depth..The strip patching will continue through April.
Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett has also requested $14 million from the city's rainy day fund to help fix the pothole problem.
"The need is real, the dollars are available, and the time to act is now," Hogsett said Friday.
