Submit Pothole Fixes To City



The City has kicked off "Pothole Palooza" encouraging citizens to submit request to aggressively repair potholes across the city" by asking for help identifying as many potholes as possible.

During the campaign, SDOT and Seattle Parks and Recreation crews are assigned to specific neighborhoods around the city. And rangers are moving throughout the city mapping out and filling potholes.

information says:
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is asking community members to report neighborhood potholes, which occur when street pavement cracks and breaks because of water and vehicle traffic. Residents typically see more potholes in the winter and spring, following periods of cold temperatures and rain or snow and Seattle had an extremely wet and cold 2016-2017 winter season. The highest numbers of potholes are typically in February and March.

How to report potholes:
• Calling the Pothole and Street Repair hotline 206-386-1218
• Using the Find It Fix It App
• Filling out our online Pothole Report 
For potholes associated with the current construction of the SR 520 West Approach Bridge North project, report it directly via email or the 24-hour hotline 206-708-4657.

SDOT Director Scott Kubly said: “We recognize that residents have been patient through a tough winter that’s resulted in an increased number of potholes and we want them to know that we’re listening when they report them.  You've told us where they are, and we are marshaling our resources to fill them.”
