The 2015 Potholepalooza, the District's War on Potholes

Potholepalooza 2015 logo

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

The first-ever Potholepalooza was held in 2009, and since then DDOT crews have filled more than 36,600 potholes during the annual campaign. 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.
