Specifically the ones near the intersection of Rhode Island Avenue. She says the craters have been there for over a month.
WUSA9 has to admit that section of road sure did give our Pothole Patrol Team a ride for our money. A whole lot of bumping around when we drove on the road.

It is obvious some patch work has been done in the past. But it either came loose or new potholes have sprouted up. Some of them down to the rock-bed.

WUSA9 is going to report this problem spot to the District Department of Transportation. The good news is this is Potholepalooza season. Which means the city promises to fix potholes in 2 days versus the usual 3.
