NCDOT Asking Drivers to Report Potholes Online

Because of last December's winter storm, potholes are appearing earlier than normal across the state. They are caused by water seeping into cracks in the road and ice forming. Those cracks widen, causing the asphalt to rise while traffic loosens the pavement eventually creating a hole in the road.

You can help expedite repairs by letting NCDOT know where potholes are located on STATE roadways by visiting NCDOT's website:

State roadways in KDH include US 158 (the Bypass), Colington Road & NC 12 (Beach Road).

For all other KDH roads, contact the Town's Public Services Department at 252-480-4080.
