To report a pothole, please call the Pothole Hotline at (816) 228-0291 and leave the exact location of the hole, the nearest cross street, and your name and phone number so that we may contact you if we have problems locating the hole.
It is the policy of Public Works to repair every reported pothole on City maintained streets within two business day of receiving notification of a pothole. Part of our service is to proactively find potholes through regular inspection.
During inclement weather, temporary repair materials known as cold mix are used. Thus, there can be repeat occurrences in the same location until weather allows for a permanent repair using materials known as hot mix.
On average, the City Streets Division repairs over 9,000 potholes a year!
