City’s Pothole Viewer Offers Improved Customer Service

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) recently launched a new online tool that allows the public to view, report, and check the status of reported street potholes. Indy’s Pothole Viewer is available at and shows all pothole repair requests received by the Mayor’s Action Center (MAC) for the prior six months.
The viewer plots all pothole requests received through the MAC on a map of the City. Red dots indicate requests that have not yet been closed. Green dots indicate pothole requests that have been closed because the City repaired the pothole, the request was a duplicate entry, or the request was forwarded to the appropriate agency for repair — such as a pothole on a State road or connected to a utility access point.
To report a pothole, users can link to the MAC’s pothole request form directly from the viewer. Upon reporting potholes, citizens receive Service Request Numbers. In addition to using the new pothole viewer, Indianapolis residents can report potholes through the MAC online at, by phone at 317-327-4MAC (4622), or by using the free RequestIndy smart phone app.
