2016 Potholepalooza Campaign

Potholepalooza is the District's spring season campaign to aggressively repair damaged roadways across the city.

The first-ever Potholepalooza was held 2009 and since then, DDOT crews have filled more than 64,000 potholes. In 2015, DDOT, the agency that repairs potholes, received more than 6,000 service requests for pothole repairs during the 2015 Potholepalooza spring-time campaign and filled 27,440 potholes. 

Throughout spring DDOT, the agency responsible for the repair of potholes for the District, will work to repair identified potholes within 48 hours of the request (normal response time is within 72 hours).

Residents and commuters are encouraged to call, go online, tweet, or e-mail to submit requests for pothole repairs (see details below).

Residents can also Track Pothole Repairs.
