Potholes and damaged sidewalks

Three ways to report potholes and damaged sidewalks in Cary:

  • Report a pothole online
  • Call (919) 469-4090 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • Tweet the pothole location to @TOC_Traffic (please note that to report a pothole using this method, you must have a Twitter account)

During wet winter weather months, we will work to provide a temporary cold patch to repair potholes on Cary maintained streets by the next business day. Potholes on state maintained roads in Cary will be reported to the N.C. Department of Transportation.

Storm Drains

Storm drains located in the curb are designed to quickly remove stormwater from the traffic lane through an underground pipe system. Materials that enter the storm drains, including litter and other pollutants, go directly to area streams and not to one of Cary's wastewater treatment facilities.
Two ways to report stormwater pollution:

  • Call (919) 469-4030, Monday - Friday between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. or after hours at (919) 469-4012. 

In addition, please keep stormdrains clean and clear of leaves, grass clippings and limbs.

With the exception of driveway pipes, the Town maintains culverts and other stormwater infrastructure in the public right-of-way. If you see a missing or broken storm drain lid, submit a report or call (919) 469-4090, Monday - Friday between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. or after hours at (919) 469-4012. 

Street Light

Progress Energy maintains street lights in Cary. Report outages online or call (866) 326-3344. To request a new street light, call the Transportation and Facilities Department at (919) 469-4030.
