Mo-Dot and Winter Pothole Repair

IN NEWS FROM JEFFERSON CITY – Missouri Department of Transportation crews are already focusing on pothole repairs to keep roads as safe as possible and will continue through the spring as weather allows. When you see a MoDOT crew making repairs, motorists should slow down and move over a lane to give them room to work safely – remember, it’s the law.

MoDOT maintains 34,000 miles of road, including interstates, U.S. and Missouri routes, and lettered routes. In 2022, MoDOT patched more than 800,000 potholes, spending more than $16 million on pothole patching.

Motorists can report the location of potholes on state-maintained roads using the following tools:

 Call the 24/7 Customer Service Center at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (275-6636).

Use the Report a Road Concern form at www.modot.org/report-road-concern.

Potholes on local streets and subdivisions should be reported to local city or county maintenance departments.
