Potholes on our roads can be a nightmare causing damage to our cars, but Moore County drivers can get them fixed by contacting the Department of Transportation.
Potholes are common during the winter season when water seeps into cracks in the road and ice forms. Those cracks widen, causing the asphalt to rise and traffic loosens the pavement, eventually creating a pothole.
With 80,000 miles of state roads, North Carolina Department of Transportation need drivers, law enforcement and others to help identify locations where potholes need to be repaired.
To speed up the response process, motorists should go to the NCDOT’s website and let the department know where it is located. The report will go directly to the county maintenance office that will handle the request.
