Va. launches pothole blitz

By Associated Press and Staff Reports

The Virginia Department of Transportation is launching a blitz of patching to plug thousands of potholes across the commonwealth.

Gov. Robert F. McDonnell announced the campaign against potholes Tuesday. He says more than 161,000 potholes were repaired during last year's pothole blitz.

McDonnell asked citizens to report the location of potholes to VDOT so that they can be repaired.

"Potholes aren't just bumps in the road; they are serious roadway hazards," McDonnell said. "VDOT will address this problem as quickly as possible.

If you're running into potholes on your regular routes, here are some resources for getting them fixed:
