City of Tampa launches FIX IT FAST Initiative to get common road repairs made within 72 hours 

The City of Tampa Mobility Department has now launched Mayor Jane Castor's FIX IT FAST Initiative. 
 
The City of Tampa's FIX IT FAST Initiative allows for residents to have the following repairs made within 72-hours after filing a report:  

  • Traffic Signs: (Stop Signs, Do Not Enter Signs, Yield Signs, No Parking Signs, Speed Limit Signs, etc.) 
  • Potholes and Other Minor Road Repairs 
  • Roadway and Sign Obstructions: (debris, fallen tree limbs/branches, etc.) 

The FIX IT FAST Program focuses on delivering timely and quality repairs with a convenient customer experience and an easy reporting system. 

How To File A Report: 

  • FIX IT FAST Web Portal: https://www.tampa.gov/fix 
  • The City of Tampa Call Center is also available 24-hours a day, seven days a week at 813-274-FAST (3278).  

Customers are just a click or call away from a dedicated team of professionals, who are committed and understand the significance of the work required to ensure the success of FIX IT FAST. 

"Making sure these repairs are finished in just days, or just a few hours of when a report is filed, is now another way we're keeping City of Tampa roadways safe for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers," Mayor Jane Castor said. "It's critical that we continue to provide the highest level of customer service and keep our neighborhoods as hazard-free as possible." 

The FIX IT FAST Program is just one part of Mayor Jane Castor's Transforming Tampa's Tomorrow vision, where transportation and resiliency are key touchpoints. This includes finding ways to minimize traffic congestion and bringing smart and accessible transit solutions to Tampa.
