Potholepalooza in DC

February 27, 2014

All the highway departments in the D.C. area invite travelers to report potholes, but the District government is unusual in the extent to which it shares the experience of discovering and fixing the road hazards. The group event known as Potholepalooza is scheduled to begin on March 20, Mayor Vincent C. Gray announced Wednesday. This annual, month-long reporting and patching campaign isn’t the only time when the District Department of Transportation fixes potholes. It just has the highest profile. In announcing the 2014 Potholepalooza, Gray noted that DDOT already has filled more than 9,000 potholes this winter. (Post)
