View as Map

It's no joke how bad the streets in Arlington, VA have become after the recent emergency snowstorm. Dept. of Environmental Services spokeswoman Jessica Baxter even had to admit that it was a "rough winter," adding, "It is our priority to get crews out there to make potholes repairs." She estimates that it will take up to two months to repair the roads with teams scheduled over the weekends and late into the evenings. ARLNow asked their readers to report where some of the worst potholes in the County are. To further help out the commuters who read Curbed DC, here is a map of the data reported by ARLNow. In case we missed any potholes, feel free to let us know in the comments. Be sure to also report the pothole by using this form.
