D.O.T. Tracks Pothole Progress With Tumblr and Rachel Sterne

The city’s chief digital officer Rachel Sterne unveiled a Tumblr today that tracks the D.O.T.’s progress in filling potholes in the five boroughs. “The Daily Pothole” reports at the top of the page that 179,218 potholes have been repaired since July 1, 2010

“Sayonara pothole! Smooth sailing now on Dekalb Avenue,” reads the caption of one pothole repair photo. Content-wise, the site also features daily tallies for fixed potholes. There’s even a link for reporting potholes.

“Mother nature has really thrown everything at us this year, but we’re fighting back harder than ever before,” Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan told WNYC.
