Reporting Potholes
Michigan's seasonal freeze-thaw cycles create the perfect conditions for potholes to form after snow and ice has melted. Moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and thaws, creating a gap in the pavement. As vehicles drive over the gap, the pavement weakens leading to a pothole. 

We want to make reporting them easy for you, but there are two things to remember. 

  1. Wayne County maintained roads are Outer Drive, Fort St, Southfield Rd, and Dix Hwy. Please report potholes on those roads to Wayne County or via the County Hotline at 1-888-762-3273
  2. For state roads (I-75), potholes can be reported online on the Michigan Department of Transportation website.
  3. For City maintained roads, please report local potholes here or call DPS at 313-386-9000 ext.2704

What You Can Do About Storm Drains
Spring is nearly here! As the days get longer and the weather warmer, many of us are starting to plan our own property maintenance plans. As part of that plan, consider including cleaning nearby storm drains of debris that may have collected during the winter months? Your efforts in helping to keep pollution from entering our waterways and minimizing the impact on our infrastructure will help everyone.

During your regular spring yard maintenance, also consider the following information. During rain events, water will pick up excess lawn fertilizer, oil from cars, and other pollutants and deposit it into our storm drains. These pipes then lead into the nearest steams or lakes.

Consider the following to minimize our impact on our system and the environment
  • Sweep excess fertilizer, yard clippings, and dirt on your driveway back onto your lawn. Hosing down your driveway sends these items into the storm drains.
  • Never dump motor oil, chemicals, pet waste, leaves or anything else down the storm drain.

From the Fire Chief - Fireworks Safety
The Lincoln Park Fire Department encourages everyone to be safe using fireworks.  Each year, usually beginning with Memorial Day weekend, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death.
 
However if you do use consumer fireworks, please follow these safety tips:
 
  • Keep a close eye on children at events where fireworks are used.
  • Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks.
  • Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting.
  • A responsible adult SHOULD supervise all firework activities. Never give fireworks to children.
  • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix.
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
  • Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away.
  • Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.
  • Never relight a "dud" firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
  • Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby.
  • Never carry fireworks in your POCKET or shoot them into METAL or GLASS containers.
  • Do not experiment with homemade fireworks.
  • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.
  • FAA regulations PROHIBIT the possession and transportation of fireworks in your checked baggage or carry-on luggage.
  • Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department.
