Potholes threaten to be the next roadway hazard, as D.C. digs its streets out of the snow. Department of Transportation spokesperson Karyn LeBlanc says, big or small, the agency hopes to hear from local residents about any pothole hazards.
"We're asking people to report everything," she says. "You can call 311 at the Mayor's call center. You can go online to dc.gov and do an online request." LeBlanc also says DDOT is on Twitter; you can follow DDOT at DDOTDC.
And then there's "Potholepalooza," a city campaign to help identify and fix any offending craters.
"'Potholepalooza' was a month-long campaign we did last year," LeBlanc says. "We'll do something similar this year."
You can send email to Potholepalooza once the campaign gets underway. Callers should identify the location of any hazards using as much detail as possible, including the approximate size and depth of the pothole.
