Statewide Blitz Fixes More Than 108,000 Potholes

Governor Bob McDonnell on Tuesday announced that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) had repaired more than 108,000 potholes throughout the Commonwealth since the launch of the 2011 pothole blitz campaign on March 8.

According to a press release from the governor's office, the milder winter this year led to fewer potholes to repair than the 161,00 filled during the 2010 pothole blitz.

The governor added that the pothole blitz "has helped to make travel safer and easier for all Virginia motorists."

Potholes can form at any time, so Loudoun County commuters shuld continue to report them at or by calling the VDOT Customer Service Center at 1-800-FOR-ROAD.
