Due to Success, Governor McDonnell Extends Statewide Pothole Blitz Through April 15

After repairing more than 120,000 pot holes since the launch Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell’s pothole blitz, the program has been extended through April 15.

"This has been a team effort starting with Virginia's citizens who have helped identify and report potholes along their travels to VDOT's Web site and call-in line," said Governor Bob McDonnell in a press release. "I would like to especially thank VDOT and its contractors who have worked day and night to save many motorists the grief and annoyance, and potential damage to their vehicle. The blitz is working so we're going to keep it up, and we ask citizens to continue reporting potholes as soon as they develop."

To report a pothole, Loudoun County motorists should visit, call VDOT's Highway Helpline at 800-367-7623 (ROAD) or fill out an online pot hole repair request form.

The repairs were prompted by the series of blizzards that crippled the region in February. In their wake, the storms left roads and highways littered with potholes and other pavement failures. A wet March also led to the deterioration of more pavement, and the need for continued pot hole repairs.
