It’s Spring – Potholepalooza Time!
The District government kicked off Potholepalooza today, an annual rite of spring in the nation’s capital to tackle the thousands of craters that form over the winter in the city’s roadways. During Potholepalooza, the District Department of Transportation works to fill reported potholes within 48 hours rather than the standard 72 hours. DDoT has set a goal of filling 12,000 potholes this season.
District residents can report potholes by calling 3-1-1, filling out an online service form, tweeting @DDOTDC, or using the hashtag #potholepalooza.
Track DDoT’s progress in repairing roadways through an online, interactive map. Red pins indicate open potholes, yellow indicates pending repairs, and green highlights closed potholes. The map updates daily.
Judging by today’s map, which is awash in red, the District has its work cut out for it:
Here’s how things look a little closer to home:
Think DDoT is missing a few holes around Tenleytown? Submit a report today and they could be filled by the weekend.
