Department asks community members to report pothole locations online or by calling 311

Nashville, Tenn. (February, 23, 2018) – Metro Public Works will continue to have crews out repairing potholes on metro Nashville roads as rain falls across Davidson County. Ongoing precipitation is causing potholes to form on roadways, and with rain forecast off and on over the next several days, this problem will persist.

Metro Public Works will have six crews out working up to 12 hours a day, five days a week, with additional crews on standby after regular business hours. During rain events, these crews will be applying temporary patches in an effort to make roadways safer. Once the rain event has passed, crews will remove temporary patches and apply permanent patches.

MPW is asking Davidson County residents to help us identify pothole locations by reporting them online or by phone. To report a pothole on a metro road, please visit or call 311 (615-862-5000). To report a pothole on an interstate or state route, please contact TDOT by calling 615-350-4400.

 “It’s really important that community members let us know about pothole locations on roadways by reporting them online or calling 311,” said Public Works Director Mark Sturtevant. “Our crews are always out inspecting roads, but they can’t be everywhere all the time. When a community member calls in, they act as an extra set of eyes for our team here at Public Works.”

Since January 1st of this year, MPW crews have filled 6,006 potholes on metro streets.
