Residents are encouraged to report potholes now

Potholes are popping up due to the fluctuating temperatures.

Potholes are popping up due to the fluctuating temperatures.

Crews are back on city streets – this time fixing potholes popping up due to the fluctuating temperatures.

Indianapolis Department of Public Works spokesman Ben Easley encouraged residents to report potholes now rather than later.

“They can go to RequestIndy or RequestIndy online or call the Mayor’s Action Center to report those potholes and now is the time to do it,” Easley said.

And that’s because there can be a backlog of pothole service orders as the freeze-thaw temperature cycle increases. 

The city received about 20,000 pothole complaints in 2021, which was a decline over the past several years.

Marion County residents can report a pothole by contacting the Mayor’s Action Center or Request Indy.
