Resurface PA Initiative Tackles Potholes & Repaving

/ WDAC

BOOTHWYN – PennDOT has mounted an aggressive campaign to accelerate repaving interstates and attacking potholes across the state’s 40,000 miles of PennDOT-maintained roads, the nation’s fifth largest such system. The Resurface PA Initiative calls for an additional $7 million investment in seven interstate maintenance projects covering potholes and other repairs on 78 miles of roads this year. PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards says persons can help by reporting potholes by calling 1-800-FIX-ROAD. Through the end of July, PennDOT used over 109,000 tons of patching material, compared to over 101,000 tons during the same period in 2017. The number of pothole concerns reported to PennDOT this year climbed to 15,154 through the end of July compared to 7,261 in 2017.
