The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) launched a new reporting system this week that makes it easier and faster for Texans to report maintenance issues on Texas highways.
The new, more efficient system also gives citizens a better opportunity to be a part of the maintenance solution by providing several million additional pairs of eyes to help TxDOT crews identify problems and preserve the State’s expansive transportation infrastructure.
TxDOT’s newly launched “Report a Pothole” initiative is available online at http://www.txdot.gov or the toll-free number at 888.885.8248.
With just a click of a mouse or a quick phone call, citizens can report a pothole, including the location of the damage.
Operators will answer phone lines from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Evening and weekend calls will go to voicemail and be returned the next morning or on the first working day of the following week. Please report any problems to help keep our state roads safe.
