Pothole-Palooza 3: D.C. To Start Monthlong Campaign To Repair Roads

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The District of Columbia is preparing to begin its annual “Potholepalooza” campaign to repair roads throughout the city.

During the monthlong effort beginning Tuesday, the District Department of Transportation will work to repair identified potholes within 48 hours instead of its normal response time of 72 hours. The campaign ends on April 21.

Residents and commuters can go online, tweet, email or call to report a pothole.

In the first Potholepalooza held in 2009, D.C. transportation crews filled more than 6,000 potholes. This marks the 3rd year for the initiative.
