How to Report Chicago Potholes in Need of Repair

If there's a pothole you want fixed, you can report it in multiple ways

As Chicago starts to thaw, so begins the season of pothole repairs.

Throughout the year, officials say Chicago Department of Transportation crews repair potholes on 3,800 miles of city streets.

Part of CDOT's process - particularly how the department finds streets to repair - includes taking reports of potholes from residents.

If there's a pothole you want repaired, you can report it in multiple ways.

You can report it on the city's 311 website by entering a street address and a description.

You can also report it through the city's CHI311 mobile app, which allows you to track pothole repairs across the city as well.

The city has a "pothole tracker" map on its website as well that shows potholes patched by CDOT over the previous seven days.
