Spring is Here and the Potholes are Blooming

Spring is upon us and we’ve survived one of the severest winters in our history.  County roads have also had to endure a season of freezing and thawing in addition to three major blizzards.  That stress will manifest itself in the form of pavement cracks and those annoying potholes.  Highway Services crews and contractors will be working all spring and summer making needed repairs. 

Residents can easily report potholes online by going to www.montgomerycountymd.gov/potholes or by calling the customer service center at 240-777-6000.  Provide details about the exact location -- the street address nearest the pothole or a landmark.  During the winter Highway Services equipped foreman pickup trucks with cold patching materials to quickly address problems.  Now that the weather is warmer, four pothole patching trucks work every day to make permanent repairs.  Highway’s goal is to fix any pothole 36 hours after the time it was reported.
