DC officials end 2nd week of Potholepalooza

Saturday - 5/4/2013, 11:50am  ET

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Officials in Washington have come to the end of their second week of Potholepalooza, their month-long campaign to fill in potholes.

As of Wednesday, the city had repaired more than 1,900 potholes.

This is the city's fifth Potholepalooza. Since the city began holding the annual events in 2009, the campaigns have filled more than 21,000 potholes. Residents and commuters can submit requests for pothole repairs by calling 311 or using an online form. They can also email or tweet the Department of Transportation.

During the campaign the District Department of Transportation will work to repair identified potholes within 48 hours instead of its normal 72-hour response time.

Potholepalooza is scheduled to end May 22.
