DC Potholepalooza Delayed Second Time

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA9)--The District's Potholepalooza campaign has been delayed a second time.

It was supposed to start tomorrow, Tuesday, March 25; however, DDOT spokesman, Reggie Sanders, tells WUSA9 "It is postponed due to weather. No new date as of now."

The original date for Potholepalooza was supposed to be Thursday, March 20. The reason for postponing that start date was "weather and schedules."

According to WUSA9 meteorologists Topper Shutt, Howard Bernstein and Eric Grow, "Flakes will fly again Tuesday but we will see almost all of it melt on contact. Minor accumulations, Trace-2", will be possible at higher elevations north and west. Roads will be just wet."
