WASHINGTON (WUSA9)--The District has patched up more than 10,000 potholes during their month-long Potholepalooza campaign, which ends Friday.
MORE: What Is Potholepalooza
Potholepalooza is a DC tradition. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) adds extra staffing and makes pothole repairs in 48 hours versus the traditional 72 hours.
"We're in the final stretch, so help us finish #Potholepalooza strong," DDOT tweeted out Wednesday. "See a pothole? Email Potholepalooza@dc.gov, dial 311, or tweet us."
In total DDOT says they have made repairs to over 40,000 potholes this year.
Allison Stanley, of Silver Spring, has some potholes located on Broad Branch Road near 27th Street in Northwest that she wants to make sure are on DDOT's To Do List.

Stanley tells WUSA9 she uses this road daily as a short cut. But it has become a short cut of "pain for her nerves and her front end alignment." She says "Hit one of these and it can be a jaw breaker."
It is obvious D-DOT has been out here to patch the potholes before. Our cameras captured the previous work. But the fill has worn away. We saw craters as big as a small child and so deep they were down to the rock bed.
WUSA9 will report this street to DDOT immediately to get it repaired.
