Potholes


Potholes. They happen all over the county, especially in the winter and spring as temperatures change. Please report potholes you encounter! Here's how:

 

VDOT logo Virginia Department of Transportation: Primary and Secondary Roads

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) maintains most primary and secondary roads in the county and fixes potholes on them.

 

Other Major Roads

VDOT does not maintain all major roads in the area, however. If you see potholes on the following major roads:

 

Fairfax County Maintained Roads

  • Very few miles of public roadway are maintained by Fairfax County. If there's a pothole on a road you know is maintained by the county, then contact 703-877-2800, TTY 711. For assistance in determining public or private responsibility for a road, please contact VDOT at 1-800-FOR-ROAD, TTY 711, or fill out VDOT's online form.  


Private and HOA Roads

  • Many private roads are maintained by businesses, apartment/condo complexes, homeowner/civic associations or residents. If you know there's a pothole on a road that's privately maintained, contact your HOA or the business that's responsible. For assistance in determining public or private responsibility for a road, please contact VDOT at 1-800-FOR-ROAD, TTY 711, or fill out VDOT's online form
