 Potholes

VDOT and its interstate maintenance contractors are responsible for patching potholes on state-maintained roadways throughout Fairfax County. If you encounter a pothole on any state-maintained road you can contact VDOT for repair by calling 1-800-FOR-ROAD or by reporting the issue here.

Potholes are created when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and then thaws. This causes the pavement to weaken and crumble. For more information on potholes please visit VDOT's website at http://www.virginiadot.org/info/faq-potholes.asp.

Please visit http://www.virginiadot.org/travel/citizen.asp to report other road problems such as:

  • Drainage culvert cleaning and repair
  • Guardrail repair
  • Signs
  • Traffic lights
  • Animal, tree and debris removal from roadway
  • Shoulder Repair

You can also contact VDOT's Customer Service Center 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623).
