RICHMOND, Va., (WAVY) – The Virginia Department of Transportation is using a new approach to provide awareness on how you report potholes.
VDOT has introduced, Phil Itkwik, as their “spokesperson” to attack potholes on the roadways.
“VDOT crews, contractors and I have potholes in our sights.” said Itkwik. “We’re working to repair them to keep roadways as safe as possible, but it helps to have extra eyes on the roads.”
If you see a pothole, Itkwik advises your to call 800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623) or go to the Report a Road Problem page of the VDOT website.
Once VDOT is aware of a pothole, it’s communicated to local crews and repairs are scheduled according to its severity and location.
Motorists can report potholes to VDOT’s Customer Service Center as well.
