Hingham Public Works

Posted on: March 4, 2022

[ARCHIVED] Department of Public Works - Winter Notice

Because of the freeze-thaw cycle in the winter is such a detriment to roads, potholes pop up seemingly out of nowhere. Roads that were once smooth suddenly start to crack and potholes often occur. Due to the freeze-thaw cycle in the winter, crews usually cannot effectively make repairs until spring. Once the temperatures are a bit milder, crews can repair the potholes more efficiently and safely.

Motorists are reminded to be aware of the hazards, slow down while driving and be alert. Potholes in need of repair should be reported to the Hingham DPW by email to or by calling the Hingham DPW office at 781-741-1430.  Any potholes on state roads (see listing below) should be reported to MassDOT Pothole Hotline at 857-368-4636.
