    Default Report a Pothole

    Arlington County has a great online service where you can report the location of a pothole online. Here's the link to their Residential Maintenance Report Form:

    https://www.arlingtonva.us/departmen...te/resform.htm

    And the mobile and web app here: http://topics.arlingtonva.us/reportproblem/

    Default Report a pothole in DC

    If your biking takes you into D.C. and you come across a pothole, WashCycle has a post on a couple of ways you can report a problem:

    Does Arlington still have an online reporting form, other than the mobile app? There is no way to file a report from a computer now.

    Go to the page linked above (which should redirect you to: http://topics.arlingtonva.us/reportproblem/) then hit the white "log in" button next to the red "sign up" button and then follow the steps.

    Is there a way to report a non-emergency traffic signal problem? The web site doesn't seem to offer that as an option, it just says to call 911 at the top of the page for traffic lights not working. 911 seems wildly inappropriate for reporting malfunctioning traffic sensors.

    You might try the SeeClickFix app. Or call 311.

    Depends. If it's a traffic light then 911 is probably the right way to go.

    Otherwise, The police non-emergency number is: 703-558-2222

    But yeah, the link above (http://topics.arlingtonva.us/reportproblem/) should take care of that too.

    Earlier this month, I called DC's 311 on the barrels on the TR Bridge. When I was transferred, the operator gave me the direct line. So if you have a want to call DDOT's Street and Bridge Maintenance office and skip 311: 202-645-7287

    That number no longer works. It gets you a generic "Cisco Messaging Service" message. I can tell you that I've put in somewhere around 10 separate requests through both 311 and SeeClickFix to clean the rock piles out from the 11th St SE bike lanes between M St SE and O St SE. I've had them closed with a note that sweeping was done even though the rock piles didn't lose a single rock, I have some still open months later, and some were closed with no explanation whatsoever.

    In the end, the only rocks that have moved since August 2017 have been the ones I personally hand swept.
