Pothole Palooza in Seattle

 Seattle is kicking off Pothole Palooza on Monday, April 17, a campaign to aggressively repair potholes across the city. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is asking community members to report neighborhood potholes so we can map them out as Pothole Rangers move throughout the city.

There are three ways to report potholes:

Potholes occur when street pavement cracks and breaks because of water and vehicle traffic. Seattle has had an extremely wet and cold 2016-2017 winter season. Residents typically see more potholes in the winter and spring, following periods of cold temperatures and rain or snow. February and March are when we see the highest numbers of potholes.
