Report a Roadway Defect or Damage Incident and Court Of Claims Information
Report a pothole, debris or other roadway defect to ODOT
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.
Thank you for your help in identifying and addressing roadway issues and concerns.
