When you mix rain, some snow, and swings in temperature from the 20s to the upper 40s, you have created the perfect conditions for creating potholes.
And some of those potholes can widen and deepen overnight, in just a matter of hours.
The Milwaukee Common Council wants city residents and business owners to help report potholes. If you see potholes – please – report them so city crews can be dispatched to fill them. Please remember that we can’t fix what we don’t know about.
If you see a really dangerous pothole or a group of them:
- Call 414-286-CITY (286-2489) and report them to City Call Center staff.
- Report via this link (select “Street Maintenance”): https://itmdapps.milwaukee.gov/XY_ESR/ReportProblem.jsp
- Report them using the MKE Mobile city app.
Also, Common Council President Ashanti Hamilton asks motorists to please drive safely at all times, and especially when they come across city crews filling the potholes. “Please give the crew members and city vehicles plenty of room to maneuver,” President Hamilton said.
