Driving Into DC? No Fear, Potholepalooza Is Here!

About 5,000 potholes get filled each year during the month-long event in the District.

Montgomery County commuters driving to and from Washington, DC, during the work week know they face a double whammy in their daily traffic wars—the volume of cars on the road and the varying quality of the road itself.

Each spring since 2009, the DC government has kicked off its month-long “Potholepalooza” on Earth Day.

It may not be as festive as it sounds, but it might make getting from here to there a bit less bone-jarring.

For 30 days, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will work to fill any identified pothole within 48 hours. Over the previous four Potholepaloozas, more than 21,000 potholes have been filled.

Is there a pothole you would like to see fixed? There are a number of ways you can report the pavement problems to DDOT:

Potholepalooza runs through May 22, 2013, so don’t miss your chance to help get DC’s potholes filled!
