Report Hazards and Issues

St. Aubin before and after using Improve Detroit

Many maintenance issues affecting our roads and sidewalks can be reported for repair.

The City of Detroit’s Improve Detroit mobile phone app is one way of reporting most issues, including potholes, missing manhole covers, blocked sidewalks, missing or malfunctioning traffic signs/signals, public lighting issues, and more.  Unfortunately issues related to street sweeping cannot be reported with the app at this time.

Improve Detroit issues can also be reported on the city’s web site or with the below widget.


Sometimes issues are on state or county roads within Detroit. We’ve found they can be reported and the city will forward them to the appropriate agency.

If you prefer, issues on Wayne County roads can be reported on their web site or by calling (888) 762-3273.
