It takes about 25 minutes for the Pothole Crew to fill one pothole on city streets.

Thanks to residents who called in reports, Fort Worth’s Pothole Crew received 660 repair requests in May, which was designated Pothole Month.

Crews repaired 2,380 potholes in May. The city receives an average of 254 requests for potholes and fills 1,041 each month.

Crews are out daily locating and filling potholes on almost 8,000 lanes miles of roadway throughout the city. But they can’t find them all, so keep reporting them to get them fixed quickly.

How to report potholes
Report potholes online or by calling 817-392-1234.

Be prepared to provide this information:

  • Your name (optional but encouraged).
  • Contact information (optional but encouraged).
  • The exact location of the pothole and/or direction of travel (required).
  • The size and dimensions of the pothole: length, width and depth (optional but encouraged).

Keep in mind, potholes are no larger than 3 feet in diameter. Anything larger than this should be reported as a “street repair” or “base failure.”
