WINTER WEATHER CAUSING EARLY POTHOLE OUTBREAK
PennDOT reminds motorists they can report potholes and other roadway concerns on state roads by calling 1-800-FIX-Road, or visiting penndot.gov and clicking on "Submit Roadway Feedback."
The agency reported that extreme fluctuations in temperatures, coupled with an active snow season, is causing an early outbreak of potholes.
A pothole develops when water seeps below the road through small cracks in the pavement surface. As the water repeatedly freezes & thaws due to temperature fluctuations, a cavity forms below the surface and larger cracks develop, which destroys the strength of the pavement.
When reporting a pothole, be as specific as possible as to pothole locations or other maintenance concerns such as deer removal or signing issues. For state routes, report the county, municipality, street name & route number, or the state route (SR) number that can be found on small black & white signs posted along state roadways. Also, provide a description of any familiar landmarks that will help PennDOT locate the problem area.
Mark Pierce is the Road Master here in Wayne Township. Please feel free to leave telephone messages for Mark at 663-1663, with concerns or questions about township roadways.
Mark and the Road Crew are doing their best to keep up with Snow Plowing and Spreading Anti-Skid materials. As we've mentioned in previous Winter posts, please keep a good distance between your vehicle and the back of the snow plows & allow the trucks plenty of room to make wide turns at intersections. Also, please be alert for snow plow trucks backing up in intersections.
Do not plow snow from your driveways across the roadways. The Road Master warns that the driveway snow hardens over time causing ridges on the roads, and can cause accidents and damage to the snow plows.
PennDOT & STATE POLICE URGE MOTORISTS TO STEER CLEAR...
Section 3327 of the Vehicle Code requires motorists when approaching or passing an emergency response area, unless otherwise directed, to:
- Pass in a lane not adjacent to that of the emergency response area, if possible.
- If passing in a nonadjacent lane is not possible, illegal or unsafe, pass the emergency response area at a careful and prudent reduced speed reasonable for safely passing the emergency response area.
In summary, if you are approaching a police vehicle, ambulance, tow truck or other emergency response vehicle that is pulled over onto the shoulder of the road, move over to the adjacent lane if you can do so safely. If you cannot switch lanes safely, then slow down as much as possible.
The penalty for violation is a fine up to $250,000, court costs and a 90-day driver's license suspension. Due to safety concerns, the Pennsylvania State Police are making a concerted effort to enforce this section of the vehicle code.
