Lost a hubcap over one of the big, new Connecticut Avenue potholes?

It might not actually be gone forever. Chevy Chase resident Randy Denchfield, who lives on Connecticut Avenue near a large pothole, kindly collected the hubcabs that recently popped off of cars traveling over it, and hung the hubcaps on the fence around his property to help reunite drivers with their hubcaps, ABC 7/WJLA reported.

"Come get them while they're hot," Denchfield said in an ABC 7/WJLA broadcast segment on Monday night

Denchfield told ABC 7/WJLA on Monday that he thinks the pothole is about four or five days old.

Thanks to recent extreme temperature changes, the potholes may have formed, literally, overnight, ABC 7/WJLA reported in the Monday night broadcast.

There is a "crater" on the northbound side of Connecticut Avenue near Oxford Street, and "trifecta of potholes" in the southbound curb lane of Connecticut Avenue, near East-West Highway, WUSA 9 reported.

The Maryland Department of Transportation told WUSA 9 that they would begin repair of the potholes on Tuesday.
