Louisville Metro’s Pothole Blitz 2018 is officially underway. Metro Public Works crews are moving across the city in a grid pattern in the annual concentrated effort to patch potholes created by the repeated freeze-thaw cycles of winter. The end of winter blitz is in addition to year round patching of potholes reported by citizens.
Citizens can help in the blitz by reporting potholes to MetroCall in one of three easy ways. Those using the social network Twitter can use the hashtag #502pothole. Include the hashtag along with the address or nearest intersection of the pothole location in any tweet and MetroCall will get the message.
There’s also a pothole reporting form at the top of the city website, Louisvilleky.gov. Click on the “Report a pothole” link, put in the location information and press send. Of course, citizens may also call MetroCall at 311 or 574-5000. The #502pothole hashtag and the online form offer the advantage of avoiding the potential for having to wait on hold on the telephone.
Public Works patches potholes on Metro Government maintained roads. Potholes on interstate highways should be reported to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet at 1-800-Patchit.
