DC Begins Annual ‘Potholepalooza’ Street Repair

WASHINGTON — Officials in Washington are beginning their annual, monthlong campaign to fill in potholes.

Monday is the first day of the “Potholepalooza” campaign. For the next month the District Department of Transportation will work to repair identified potholes within 48 hours instead of its normal 72-hour response time.

This is the city’s fifth Potholepalooza. Since the city began holding the annual events in 2009, the campaigns have filled 21,011 potholes. Residents and commuters can submit requests for pothole repairs by calling 311 or using an online form. They can also email or tweet the Department of Transportation.
