A “Pothole Blitz” launched last week by the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is off to a fast start, according to transportation officials. In the first eight days of the blitz, the public reported nearly 5,000 potholes to SCDOT, about 10 times the normal amount. Eighty-three percent of those potholes reported by the public have already been repaired and the remainder should be completed within the next week,” said Deputy Secretary for Engineering Leland Colvin. The public is asked to continue to help SCDOT by reporting potholes via SCDOT's website, www.scdot.org, or by calling the SCDOT at 855-GO-SCDOT (855-467-2368). "Please use caution while driving and watch out for our work crews out on the roads trying to make these temporary repairs.
