Now that spring is here, and the weather warms, please be on the lookout for potholes. Potholes form as asphalt road surfaces crack under the heat of the day. These cracks allow snow and rain water to seep into the underlying dirt and gravel. This water freezes and expands, and as a result dirt and gravel is pushed out leaving a hole when the water eventually melts.
To report a pothole issue, please call (516) 571-6900 or download and use the Nassau Now mobile application on your smartphone or mobile device. The app will enable a photograph to be taken of the area and sent to the Highway Department with the GPS location.
