Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced he is dispatching 15 Public Works Department (PWD) trucks to repair potholes across the City. The combination of freezing temperatures, a thaw and precipitation make roads especially susceptible to defects. The Mayor is encouraging residents to report potholes through any of the City's several different platforms, including: 

Mobile: Download the free BOS:311 app on iOS or Android (previously known as Citizens Connect)


Social Media: Tweet @BOS311

Phone: Dial 3-1-1 (previously the Mayor's 24-hour hotline 617-635-4500. For those with VoIP and for calls from outside Boston, callers should continue to dial 617-635-4500.)
