See potholes? Here's what to do

Article Published 02/26/2014
Winter is winding down. It has been a tough season with plenty of ice, and freezing and thawing. At this time of year when we typically see an increase in the number of potholes, Layton crews will continue to focus on pothole identification and repair. As always, the City invites the public's help in making us aware of potholes since they can develop very quickly.
However, who should you notify about any particularly hazardous potholes spotted that could damage vehicles or cause accidents?
Do NOT ever call 911 for pothole problems, but notify police dispatch at 801-497-8300, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. (You should also call this number for any other potentially hazardous situations noticed on city property, such as problems with traffic control devices, missing manhole lids, etc.)
If the pothole is smaller and more of a nuisance than a hazard, contact Layton City Public Works Department at 801-336-3720 during business hours. If the problem is along a State Road, such as Main Street, contact the Utah Department of Transportation at: 801-620-1600, weekdays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
