(KDKZ-TV) Throughout March, maintenance crews will be repairing potholes to keep roads as safe and smooth as possible. The public is asked to report potholes so MoDOT maintenance crews can assess the damage and complete the needed repairs.
Motorists are asked to watch out for crews making the repairs, slow down and move over a lane to give them room to work. As many as 300 pothole patching crews may be working to make state roadways safer.
Motorists can report the location of potholes on state-maintained roads using the following tools:
- Call our 24/7 Customer Service Center at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (888-275-6636)
- Use our Report a Road Concern form on the web at www.modot.org
- Use your smart phone/tablet with a mobile-friendly form at www.modot.org/roadconcern
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Potholes form when temperatures warm up during the day, but continue to be cold at night. This is the main cause of potholes in highways and why they are prevalent during spring.
