Frequently Asked Questions
In case of a roadway emergency, such as a slide or wash out, who do I need to contact?
During an emergency in which roadways unexpectedly become unsafe, local law enforcement
should be notified immediately to take the appropriate public safety measures. They will contact
NCDOT to dispatch necessary personnel.
How do I report damaged roads (including potholes) or debris (rocks, mud, trees, dead
animals) in roadways?
If there is damage or an obstruction in a public roadway that might pose a hazard to motorists, contact local law enforcement. If necessary, they will contact the appropriate NCDOT office. If the debris or damage does not pose a serious hazard, contact the local NCDOT county maintenance office to make a report.
During inclement weather, how can I find out when my road will be cleared?
NCDOT has established policies regarding the order in which roads are cleared. Our Snow Clearing Policy outlines the priority order for clearing snow and ice from roadways.
Who do I contact to request that a gravel road be scraped or new gravel applied?
