Road Maintenance


Report Potholes Directly to Oakland County 

As the weather warms, the snow melts and the rain begins, the potholes will begin to grow in number and in size. The roads in Bloomfield Township will be pocked with the holes that will damage vehicles and become safety hazards. The Bloomfield Township’s Department of Public Works Road Division will do everything possible to fill the holes by patrolling the subdivision streets on a daily basis. We maintain 213 miles of road so not every neighborhood will be patched every day. With that in mind, please give the Department of Public Works a call at 248-594-2800 to report potholes. Or you can Email us.

Remember, Bloomfield Township only maintains the subdivision roads. Major roads like Telegraph, Woodward, Square Lake, Maple, Quarton, Franklin and so on, are maintained by the Road Commission for Oakland County, RCOC. To Contact RCOC please call their Customer Service Department at 248-858-4804 or Email them.

Working together we can help reduce the plague of potholes.
