How to Report Potholes in Dearborn

It's pothole season: Help your fellow drivers and let us know where the bad ones are in Dearborn.

It's pothole season!

Do you avoid certain roads or areas every time you drive in the Dearborn area for fear of hitting a really bad pothole?

Residents can report potholes to the City of Dearborn, Wayne County, or the Michigan Department of Transportation, depending on which entity is responsible for maintenance.

State roads include freeways with M, I, or US designations—such as Michigan Avenue (US-12) and the Southfield Freeway (M-39).

  • To alert the city's Department of Public Works of a pothole, call 313-943-2107.
  • For a pothole on a Wayne County road, call 734-955-9920.
  • For state highways, report potholes online to the Michigan Department of Transportation here.
  • If you see a hazardous pothole anywhere in the city—one that threatens to pop tires or cause accidents—call the Wayne County Roads Division at 1-888-ROAD CREW.

There is a pothole on Monroe at Michigan Ave. It is in the right turn lane and gets me every time I make that turn:(

I just tried calling the Wayne County Road number and no one picked up and there was no answering device, just a recording to say that no one was answering , please call again. There is a pothole on the ramp going up to Greenfield, on the left side, as you approach from east bound Rntunda. My CD player jumped, as did I. Maybe Wayne county will read this and do something about it!

Therese, gee, what else would you expect from our disfuntional Wayne Couty government? Why not call Gary Woronchak...not that it would do any good. He is as disfunctional as the rest of that den of thieves/.
