Louisville’s “pothole blitz” is over but you can still help us repair the remaining potholes by reporting them with a specific address.

Citizens are urged to report potholes to MetroCall by dialing 311 or 574-5000. Reports may also be made through an online service request

at https://louisvilleky.gov/government/metrocall-311. You can now download a smartphone application to report issues.  For more information click here. Potholes on interstate highways should be reported to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet at 1-877-For-KYTC (367-5982).

Potholes result from a combination of water that seeps through cracks caused by normal wear and tear in asphalt, repeated freezing and thawing temperatures, and the weight of traffic. Cold temperatures cause the water to freeze and expand, weakening the pavement. The weight of traffic on the weakened pavement then breaks the asphalt, eventually leaving a hole that grows as more traffic goes over it.

Please help us make driving better and safer by reporting potholes to MetroCall.
