Texas Launches Report A Pothole Program


By BJ Austin, KERA News

Dallas, TX – This is the first week for the Texas Department of Transportation's new "Report a Pothole" program.

TxDOT's Penny Mason says people can alert crews to potholes online or with a toll-free call.

Mason: It just makes sense to have more eyes on the road. So, if you've got several million Texas citizens looking out for damage on the highways and helping us figure out where all that is, it's kind of an extension of our maintenance forces.

Mason says the goal is to have those potholes fixed within two days.

Report a Pothole: 1-888-885-8248
