    It's a sign spring is here!

    D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) are kicking off this year's potholepalooza Monday.

    Yes, that's really what it's called.

    "The first-ever Potholepalooza was held in 2009, and since then DDOT crews have filled almost 21,011 potholes during the annual campaign," says DDOT on its website.

    For the next month, D.C. crews will aggressively repair potholes across the District.

    You can call 311, email Potholepalooza@dc.gov, or tweet @DDOTDC to request a pothole repair.

    During Potholepalooza, crews will aim to fulfill pothole requests within 48 hours instead of their normal response time of 72 hours.

    The project ends May 22.
