HAMPTON ROADS MAINTENANCE CREWS TARGETING POTHOLES
Public can help by reporting road damage to 1-800-FOR-ROAD

SUFFOLK – VDOT’s Hampton Roads District has turned its focus from clearing ice-covered roads to filling potholes that are emerging due to the recent temperature swings.

Crews have been proactively repairing trouble spots on interstates and on state-maintained primary and secondary roads as the region thaws from days of freezing weather. VDOT asks the public to report when and where they spot a pothole to help the District fix as many as possible. To do so, call VDOT’s Customer Care Center at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623), or visit http://my.vdot.virginia.gov.

VDOT will continue to repair potholes on state-maintained roads as damage arises. If the pothole is on a city street, please call the public works department for that locality.
