    Mayor Vincent Gray will kick off this year's Potholepalooza Wednesday.

    Mayor Vincent Gray will kick off this year's "Potholepalooza" Wednesday.

    The annual 30-day campaign was postponed for nearly three weeks due to weather conditions. During the campaign, crews from the District Department of Transportation will fill and fix potholes and roadway problems around the city. This year, the city plans to send extra crews to accommodate the extreme need for repairs caused by extreme winter weather. 

    "The unusually cold winter coupled with the snow and temperature fluctuations have all taken a toll on our roads," Mayor Gray said in a press release. 

    D.C. residents are encouraged to report pot holes to the city by calling (311), online at 311.gov, tweet @DDOTDC, email potholepalooza@dc.gov, via the DC311 app, or at the campaign's Facebook page, here.

    Normal response time to repair reported potholes is 72 hours. During Potholepalooza, they will try to fix them in 48 hours.
