Report Potholes to PennDOT by Calling 1-800-FIX-ROAD or Going Online
Motorists that can report potholes and other roadway concerns on state roads by calling 1-800-FIX-ROAD or visiting dot.state.pa.us and clicking on “Submit Roadway Feedback.”

Citizens are asked to be as specific as possible when reporting pothole locations or other maintenance concerns on state routes such as deer removal or signing issues. Citizens are asked to report the county, municipality, street name and route number, or the state route (SR) number that can be found on small black and white signs posted along state roadways. Citizens should also provide a description of any familiar landmarks that will help PennDOT locate the problem area.

Once notified, PennDOT will work expeditiously to address roadway concerns as weather permits.

Weather permitting, PennDOT is working daily to repair potholes on state highways throughout the five-county Philadelphia region. Crews have placed nearly 3,000 tons of patching material on state roads in the region since December 1, 2015.

The 1-800-FIX-ROAD number should not be used to report traffic accidents, disabled vehicles, or other emergencies. Motorists should continue to call 911 to report those types of incidents.
