Know of a pothole? City wants to know for ‘Potholepalooza’

City officials are encouraging Chicagoans to “report as many street potholes as possible” this weekend as part of “Potholepalooza.”

Chicago Department of Transportation Commissioner Gabe Klein said the city needs help identifying all the locations where work needs to be done before pothole crews are switched to resurfacing in mid-April.

Potholes can be reported by dialing 311, by going to or by texting “Chicago” to 311311.
