It's not spring yet, but a mid-January warm-up brought with it a bumper crop of potholes across Michigan. If you spot a pothole on an I-, US- or M-route, you can report it to the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) Pothole Hotline.

Motorists in Michigan can report potholes on state highways in three ways: calling the Pothole Hotline at 888-296-4546; clicking the "Report a Pothole" link in the Spotlight section at www.michigan.gov/mdot; or by calling your local MDOT Transportation Service Center (TSC) or region office.

"The quicker we know about where potholes are forming, the sooner we can get them patched," said State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle. "Patching them won't last, but will help get us through until warmer weather returns."
