Salem residents who know of a pothole on a public roadway should help the city by reporting it directly to Department of Public Services by emailing email@example.com or calling 978-744-3302. Include the exact address or a location description, along with a contact name and telephone number if possible. Feel free to send photos, as well. Reporting a pothole does not guarantee it will be immediately repaired that day; it will be added to the list for DPS crews to fix. DPS prioritizes potholes based on their severity and attempts to work in geographic clusters to maximize efficiency of resources.
