Virginia officials fix 43,000 potholes in two weeks

By Washington Post editors

Virginia officials announced Tuesday that they have filled 43,000 potholes over the past two weeks.

Melting snow and ice from the snowiest winter on record caused thousands of potholes to sprout across the Washington region. Earlier this month, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty announced a second annual repair effort dubbed "Potholepalooza" to tackle the alignment-jarring road hazard in the District.

Virginia budgeted $45.8 million for asphalt and concrete patching through June 30.

Here's a Post guide to where to call if you want to report a pothole in the District, Virginia or Maryland.
