WASHINGTON – Avoiding potholes in D.C. is a losing battle but the District is fighting back.
The District Department of Transportation’s annual “Potholepalooza” campaign starts up Tuesday.
For the next month, residents can go online, email firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet or call 311 to report a pothole.
DDOT says it will patch the holes within 48 hours compared to the normal 72-hour window.
DDOT started the program in 2009 and it’s been successful ever since.
“We’ve filled 19,000 potholes over the first three Potholepalooza campaigns,” says DDOT spokesperson John Lisle.
