How to report a pothole in your town

(WTNH) — After the heavy snow we’ve had in Connecticut this winter, it’s going to be a long pothole season.

The state is asking for your patience for pothole repairs, but road crews can’t repair a pothole if they don’t know about it, which is where you can help.

News 8’s Pothole Patrol has compiled these resources so you can get potholes repaired in your town quickly.

See Click Fix – This website is used by many towns and cities, including Hartford and New Haven to monitor issues in neighborhoods from street lights to potholes. Just enter your town or city to see problems that have already been reported, or to report a pothole yourself.

Connecticut DOT – The State DOT maintains state roads and highways. If you spot a dangerous road condition, you can email the DOT and report the problem.

Some Connecticut towns and cities ask that you contact town hall to report the location of pothole. For example, the town of Manchester asks residents for the exact location of the pothole, the size, and where it is in the roadway.

News 8 is out on Pothole Patrol finding the most dangerous roads in the state. If a road near you is in bad shape, and it seems like no one is responding to repair it, Report-It to News 8.
