VDOT's "Pothole Blitz"

Governor Bob McDonnell today announced that Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews have patched, repaired or filled more than 43,000 potholes throughout the commonwealth since it kicked off the agency’s "pothole blitz" March 1.

The Governor directed VDOT to launch its pothole blitz and focus efforts on patching the thousands of potholes resulting from this winter’s harsh weather. VDOT crews have worked day and night to address pavement hazards reported by VDOT crews, contractors and citizens.

To report a pothole, visit http://www.virginiadot.org/ or call VDOT’s Highway Helpline at 800-367-7623 (ROAD). Safe driving tips, pothole patching videos, and other useful information on potholes is also available on VDOT’s Web site at hwww.virginiadot.org/info/faq-potholes.asp.

And just when you thought potholes weren't funny, check out the VDOT video, "Phil Itkwik, The Pothole Hunter."
