What's the big deal?


Potholes are more than just a nuisance. They can be dangerous and expensive for the city, and taxpayers, to repair.

There are currently 1,124 potholes reported in the city of Chicago. That's a lot of patching and repairing! By intelligently rating and ranking the potholes in the system with our internal rating algorithm Spothole can help to better prioritize maintenance efforts.

  1. 1. 115 E CHICAGO AVE [52]
  2. 2. E GRAND AVE NEAR NORTH [52]
  3. 3. 153-199 WEST CONGRESS PARKWAY [49]
  4. 4. NORTH RACINE AVENUE WEST TOWN [49]

Originally concevied in conjunction with Moving Design's 2011 Call To Action (sponsored by the Active Transportation Alliance) Spothole has continued to grow with the passion of a dedicated team.

By using Spothole to report potholes in Chicago you are helping to improve the process of pothole repair. In addition to spotting potholes you can encourage your local officials to address the highest rated potholes in your area and remind them that there's a tool out there to help them find those trouble spots.
