ANC 3F Commissioner Sally Gresham has been on a tear, working to draw various DC agencies’ attention to problems on Brandywine Street between Connecticut Avenue and 31st Street. Among the problems that need to be addressed have been potholes, poor drainage, bank erosion, curb ramps and general neglect of the sidewalk on the north side.
Gresham can now cross one item off her list. The potholes were filled in on Saturday. She took this photo of the crew at work.
“But what about the potholes on my street?” you ask. You can report them to DDOT by calling 3-1-1 or by visiting 311.dc.gov. And this week, DDOT is launching its seventh annual “Potholepalooza.” This is a month-long effort to accelerate its response to our pothole reports. Once Potholepalooza gets under way, DDOT is promising to send a crew to a fill pothole within 48 hours of receiving a report.
