Town of Truro Public Works crews work each year to minimize road damage, especially after harsh winter conditions. Unfortunately potholes can develop faster than repairs can be made. The Courts have determined that the Town of Truro cannot be found liable for damages caused by a pothole or displaced cover (e.g. manhole cover, valve cover) unless negligence is proven. The Town can only be found negligent if it knew of the issue and failed to inspect and commence repairs or determine a course of action in a timely manner.

Please drive with care and caution to avoid damage to your vehicle.
