L.A. officials hope to repair more than 10,000 potholes during a campaign that began Saturday after weeks of heavy rains.

The agency has received about 3,000 calls from residents in the last week about potholes and other road damage, he said. More than 50 street-repair workers participated in Saturday's operation, and several dozen more were expected to join them Sunday.

"We hope to make between 10,000 to 15,000 small asphalt repairs, including potholes, pop-outs and skin patching," said William Robertson, director of the city Bureau of Street Services.
