This is how to report potholes to NCDOT
CHARLOTTE, NC- Last December’s early winter storm has DOT crews busy repairing potholes throughout the state.
Potholes are common in winter months when water seeps into cracks in the road and ice forms.
Those cracks widen, causing the asphalt to rise and traffic loosens the pavement, eventually creating a pothole.
The NC DOT is responsible for 80,000 miles of roads throughout the state and rely on law enforcement and motorists to report potholes to the department.
To speed up the response process, you can report potholes to the NCDOT website.
