There was one fewer pothole in Baltimore Wednesday morning after Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young packed asphalt into one on N. Collington Avenue in East Baltimore, kicking off a challenge for transportation workers to fill 5,000 potholes over the next 50 days.

The 50-day pothole challenge is the latest piece of Young’s “Clean It Up!” campaign, which he launched last month, to beautify Baltimore.
