Report a Problem or Make a Request
If you encounter problems or hazards affecting cyclists and walkers, please report the problem by calling City Link at 311 or (336)727-8000 or online at the City of Winston-Salem website (scroll down the Home Page to City Link).
City Link App
A City Link mobile application, available for download to your mobile device makes it easier than ever to report problems as you are using streets, sidewalks, and greenways. Please download the City Link App for your mobile device and use it to report maintenance and safety issues as you see them. More information is available on the City Link webpage.
To request sidewalk repairs or new sidewalks, give the CityLink operator the specific street location and the nearest cross streets.
To report vehicles parked on a sidewalk, ask City Link to connect you to the Police non-emergency desk so that an officer can investigate and possibly ticket the offender.
For debris, carts and encroaching greenery on bike lanes and sidewalks, ask City Link to connect you to Code Enforcement. Be prepared to give the address or specific location.
The City of Winston-Salem is working diligently to handle these reports and correct problems.
