Report a pothole, sinkhole, or emergency road hazard

Service
Report potholes, sinkholes, or other emergency road hazards online, via email, or by calling our 24/7 maintenance dispatch at the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT).

Calls are answered 24/7. Repair times will vary depending on the emergency.

Verify the pothole

Damage on the roadway is not necessarily a pothole...

If you're not sure if the damage fits one of the above descriptions, feel free to call PBOT's 24/7 maintenance dispatch line

How deep is the defect? If it is shallow, and only damaged slightly above the top surface- it could be a delamination.

Is the shape rectangular? It could have been made intentionally to access utilities, contractors are responsible for these repairs.

Is it a deep hole which reaches beyond the base of the road? It could be a sinkhole.
