(WXYZ) — As the weather warms up, we're asking viewers where the worst roads or potholes are across metro Detroit. We're on a mission to track them down and get answers for the community.

From the viewer submissions we've gathered so far, you can check out the problem areas on the map below.

Is there a road that needs help? Or a major pothole in your area causing big issues? We want to hear about it.

Email your tips to and include any photos of the pothole you may have. We'll add the spot to our map and possibly use your submission on-air.
