potholeAccording to a DDOT Press Release on March 10th, Mayor Adrian Fenty announced the District’s first-ever “Potholepalooza.” Its a month long campaign to encourage residents and commuters to report potholes for repair. Starting yesterday and running through April 11, DDOT — the agency responsible for the repair of potholes for the District — will work to repair identified potholes within 48 hours (normal response time is within 72 hours).

Residents and Commuters can notify DDOT in a variety of ways: 1) call the Mayor’s Call Center at 311, 2) use the On-line Service Request Center at dc.gov, 3) text message or Tweet to DDOTDC@twitter.com, or 4) email to Potholepalooza@DC.Gov. Callers must identify the location including the correct quadrant (NW, NE, SE, SW) in the District and as much detail as possible about the hazard, including the approximate size and depth of the pothole. DDOT crews will also be out and about proactively identifying potholes.
