Spring Hill Residents Encouraged to Report Potholes


Rebounding from freezing winter weather and recent heavy rains, the Spring Hill Public Works Department is busy repairing potholes that continue to surface throughout city streets.

City crews are working from a master list to effectively address known potholes, but they
can always use the publics’ help spotting them. It typically takes about two days to
complete a pothole repair after it has been reported.

Residents wishing to report potholes on Spring Hill roadways have two options:

1. Call Public Works Department at (931) 486-2252, ext. 279.

2. Visit our website, springhilltn.org. Click “Let Us Know” on the home page, and choose “Report a Pothole” under the Public Works category.

For potholes specifically on Duplex Road (State Route 247), please call Eutaw Construction at (615) 426-1507.

For potholes on other state roadways – including U.S. 31/S.R. 6 (Main Street/Columbia Pike), Beechcroft Road, S.R. 396 (Saturn Parkway), and I-65 – please visit www.tdot.state.tn.us/pothole-schedule.htm to report them to the Tennessee Department of Transportation and to view a TDOT pothole repair schedule for your region.

Outside of local government facilities, potholes in business parking lots are the
responsibility of each respective private property owner.

How potholes form: When water seeps through cracks in the roadway, it softens the road base, freezes underneath, and then expands and forces up the road surface. When temperatures rise and the ice thaws, it leaves a hole under the expanded segment of pavement. The weight of passing vehicles collapses the road surface into the hole. Repeated wear from traffic quickly expands the hole.
