City launches map for pothole status

February 3rd, 2011 by master

Tracking the progress of your favorite local potholes just got easier. The Seattle Department of Transportation has launched a Pothole Status Map, where you can see all the city’s potholes that have been reported and the ones that have been filled since March 15, 2010.

The SDOT webpage about Seattle’s street pits said that crews called “pothole rangers” filled 2,584 potholes in December 2010.

Don’t see your pet pothole on the map? Use this form to report potholes and other non-emergency problems (minor street repairs, malfunctioning traffic signals,  damaged street signs) to SDOT.

Got potholes? Report them to the city

December 30th, 2010 by master

In the spring, Seattle’s rain encourages blooms and beauty, but in the winter that wetness brings on the season of potholes. Is it our imagination, or are the hazardous holes particularly prolific this year?

If you see a pothole, be sure to report it to the city, either online or by phone (684-ROAD). The “Pothole Rangers” should be out to fix it soon, but keep in mind they’re very busy, as KING-5 reported a couple of weeks ago.
