Roads -- Providence District
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:
