ODOT is responsible for the State System of roads – which includes all Interstates, as well as U.S. and State Routes outside of municipalities. If you have noticed and/or have experienced damage to your vehicle on a State System roadway as a result of a pothole, debris on the road, etc., please use the form below to send ODOT information about the location and incident. Your information will be forwarded along to a local ODOT office for attention.
If the identified location is on a local or municipal roadway and not on the State System, you should first try to contact the specific agency with jurisdiction for that location (for example: city, county, township, etc).
Claims may be filed with the Ohio Court of Claims. Click here to visit the Ohio Court of Claims Web site for more information on the claims process.
