The month-long extravaganza in which D.C.’s Department of Transportation fills reported potholes in 48 hours instead of 72 hours ends today. The annual campaign launched on April 9.
So just how many potholes did the agency fill?
During the month of the campaign, DDOT says it filled 11,138 potholes. In all of 2014, it has filled 41,461 potholes.
Between 2009, when the campaign launched, and last year, DDOT crews have filled 24,910 potholes during Potholepalooza.
This year’s brutal winter took an extra toll on the city’s streets, accounting for the higher-than-usual number of pothole repairs.
If you see any potholes in the final stretch of the campaign today, you can report it in one of the following ways:
- Call 311
- Visit 311.dc.gov
- Send a tweet to twitter.com/DDOTDC
- Email Potholepalooza@dc.gov
- Use the District’s DC311 smartphone application.
