Detroit — The city of Detroit is launching a cellphone application that will make it easier for residents to file complaints about infrastructure.

Mayor Mike Duggan, Chief Information Officer Beth Niblock and other city department leaders plan to unveil the “Improve Detroit” mobile app at a press conference Wednesday morning.

The program allows residents to report issues such as potholes, broken water mains and malfunctioning traffic signals through their smartphones.

Duggan’s office says the app is part of his effort to make city government more accessible and responsive to residents.
