More than 2,000 Potholes Filled Since January 1

The Department of Transportation’s Division of Highway Services (DHS) has filled more than 2,000 potholes since January 1 -- with most having been filled within 48 hours of when they were reported.

Four DHS pothole trucks and crews fill potholes nearly every day of the year. The crews respond to reports of potholes and, if, on their way, they see others that need to be filled, they take care of them as well. Since spring is a peak time for pothole formation, DHS has added 20 additional trucks and crews to fill potholes.

Potholes can also result from significant structural problems in the roads. In these cases, because major repairs to the roads will be necessary, the fixes require more than 48 hours to complete.

Residents can report a pothole online or by calling 311 from within the County or 240-777-0311 from outside the County.
