Transportation Cabinet Opens Pothole Hotline

(FRANKFORT, Ky., January 20th, 2005, 12:05 p.m.) -- See a pothole? Patch it.

The Transportation Cabinet has opened its toll-free hotline to report those gaping chasms of asphalt that can rattle the undercarriage and the nerves.

In the past, the hotline was open only during "pothole season" from Feb. 1 to May 1, but cabinet officials will keep it operating year-round to take reports about those offending holes on state-maintained roads.

A recording asks the caller for a name and location of the pothole, including the county, route number and approximate mile marker or landmark. A release from the cabinet said the holes will be filled as soon as possible.

The toll-free number is 1-800-728-2448 (1-800-Patch-It).
