April Means Pothole Repairs

Spring is here and after the winter weather we’ve had, potholes become more frequent. Potholes get reported to the Department of Public Works Streets & Bridges. Crews are dispatched to inspect potholes in the order they’re received. Crews will temporarily patch the pothole to make it safe and complete the permanent repair within the next couple of days, weather permitting.

If you see a pothole, report it through the MyNorfolk app or online portal. Be sure to include a description of the pothole and the nearest street location to help Public Works Streets & Bridges crews make the repair as soon as possible.

The city also keeps track of how many potholes are repaired. You can check it out in the Work Order (Streets & Bridges) dataset in the Open Data Portal.
