Pothole patrol along Connecticut Avenue


CHEVY CHASE, Md. (WUSA9)-- WUSA9 went on pothole patrol in Chevy Chase Thursday afternoon. This is the result of an email we got from a viewer, Lilly Barake. She asked us to check on some craters along Connecticut Avenue. In her email Barake wrote, "There [were] at least 20 cars including mine that had a flat tire and [were] lined up on Connecticut Ave in Chevy Chase because of a pothole. Could you please shine a light on it."

So we sent our Surae Chinn out to investigate.

"We've noticed people swerving into the middle lane. We've noticed people stopping suddenly and trying to avoid it and causing a backup. We've noticed the concern of people losing hubcaps or getting flat tires," says Elizabeth Dodson, a Chevy Chase resident.
