Highway Maintenance, Safety, and Travel

Report potholes, find snow and ice information, and learn more about our dedication to highway safety.

The Ohio Department of Transportation constructs and maintains the state transportation system. Generally, we are responsible for interstate routes, as well as state and federal routes outside of municipalities.

The state of Ohio is a "home rule" state, which means that municipalities are responsible for all roadways within their own municipal limits – including roads that are part of the state or federal system. For any concerns regarding roadways within municipalities, please contact the municipality responsible.

Most maintenance concerns are typically handled locally by ODOT forces in each county. Using the information below or our contact form will ensure your concern is routed to the appropriate personnel in the timeliest manner.
