The results of the District’s 10th annual “Potholepalooza” campaign are in.
The District Department of Transportation said it closed roughly 5,000 potholes during an aggressive push between April 6 and April 30. The city got 960 service requests for pothole repairs. It closed a total of 1,070 overall service requests.
During “Potholepalooza,” the city sought to reduce the service response time for pothole repairs from 72 hours to 48. Officials said the average response time during the campaign was 44 hours.
Work crews have filled about 12,000 potholes in the city during this fiscal year.
If you see a pothole that needs to be filled, you can still call the 311 or go online at 311.dc.gov to make a service request.
