Pothole Repairs

Pothole Season

Idaho Falls, ID – Spring has sprung and so too have the potholes. As a result of the freezing and thawing temperatures and wet winter, the City of Idaho Falls Street Division has turned their attention from snow removal to pothole repair.

Although the crews drive the roadways frequently to check on road conditions, they may inadvertently miss a pothole. To report a pothole or other street issue inside city of Idaho Falls limits, click on the "Report Pothole" link on the home page of our website. The goal is to get the damage repaired within 24 hours of receiving the report. If the problem is hazardous to the public, please contact the Street Division immediately at (208) 612-8490 as the website form may not be reviewed until the next regular business day.

Public Information Officer Kerry Hammon states, “We have received several concerns about potholes on Broadway and Yellowstone/Northgate Mile. Although those two roadways run through the city of Idaho Falls, they are highways and therefore maintained by the Idaho Transportation Department.”

“ITD crews are working on Northgate Mile under the overpass today in hopes of opening it up this afternoon,” says ITD Operations Engineer Wade Allen. “We appreciate the public’s patience as state road crews are still addressing significant challenges with snow removal in other parts of the state.” Wade also states, “Starting tonight, ITD crews will be working on pothole repairs on Broadway and Yellowstone/Northgate mile and will do so in the evening hours to lessen the impact to the public.”

To report a street issue outside of city limits (Bonneville County), contact Bonneville County Road & Bridge at (208) 529-1290.

To report issues with Yellowstone/Northgate Mile and Broadway, call ITD at (208) 745-7781.
