City be­gin­ning its an­nual cam­paign to fill pot­holes

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

The Dis­trict has be­gun its an­nual cam­paign to fill pot­holes.

Mayor Muriel Bowser of­fi­cially launched the an­nual Pot­holepalooza cam­paign Mon­day.

The city says that over the next month the Dis­trict Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion, which is re­spon­si­ble for re­pair­ing the road­ways, will work to re­pair iden­ti­fied pot­holes within 48 hours, rather than its nor­mal 72 hour re­sponse time.

Dur­ing the 2016 Pot­holepalooza cam­paign, the city says the DDOT re­ceived more than 2,000 ser­vice re­quests for pot­hole re­pairs and filled more than 16,700 pot­holes.
