MEDIA RELEASE

Report a Pothole

Frederick, MD February 22, 2016: Winter has left a reminder of the cold temperatures and stress on roadways in the form of potholes throughout The City of Frederick.

Pothole locations can be reported on the City website at www.cityoffrederick.com and click on “Report a Pothole” under Topics of Interest or visit Report a Pothole.

What causes potholes? Potholes form because asphalt road surfaces eventually crack under the heat of the day and the constant stresses of traffic. These cracks allow snow and rainwater to seep into the underlying dirt and gravel. During cold nights, the water freezes and expands, pushing out some of the dirt and gravel, leaving a hole when the water eventually melts. Drivers continue to drive over these unseen holes, putting even more stress on the thin asphalt layer covering them. Eventually, the asphalt layer over these divots collapses, leaving holes in the roadway
