Report Potholes, Sinkholes & Road Cuts on City-maintained Streets

  • A sinkhole is a natural depression in the surface that is much deeper or larger than a pothole. They vary in size from less than a metre to several hundred metres.

  • A pothole is a defect in the roadway caused by pavement fatigue, poor support beneath the surface or moisture penetration. Potholes vary in size, depth and shape.

  • A road cut is a clean, smooth, square cut where there is water or sewer replacement or utility work being done.

How to Report

Call 905-546-2489

You will need to report:

Mud Tracking

Fouling the highway or mud tracking is when a vehicle spills or tracks mud, soil or building materials when leaving or entering a property, onto a city street. Drivers need to make sure their vehicles are not tracking materials onto the street. If material gets on the street, it is the driver’s responsibility to clean it.

Municipal Law Enforcement Officers can investigate. If they find a violation they will ensure the operator is aware of their responsibility to keep the street clean. If there are subsequent violations officers can issue a Fee for Inspection and may issue a ticket and/or court actions.
