Who locates and fixes potholes? How do I go about reporting potholes?

MDOT maintenance personnel routinely inspect state trunklines, monitoring them for many conditions, including the development of potholes. If you notice a pothole forming on an "M," "US," or "I" route, you can report it any of three ways:

  1. Fill out MDOT's "Report a Pothole" form online;
  2. Call the Pothole Hotline at 888-296-4546;
  3. Contact your local Transportation Service Center (TSC) or MDOT region office.

To report potholes and other problems related to local roads, contact your local city or county road commission.
