State Sen. Alloway reminds motorists that potholes, concerns can be reported

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- State Sen. Richard Alloway II, R-Franklin/Adams/York, reminds motorists that potholes and other roadway concerns can be reported by calling 1-800-FIX-ROAD.

"Potholes and other road hazards can result in costly auto repairs, dangerous driving conditions and serious accidents," Alloway said. "Calling the pothole hot line will allow the Department of Transportation to address dangerous road conditions as quickly as possible."

PennDOT's toll-free hot line connects callers directly to their respective county maintenance offices.

Alloway said callers should try to be as specific as possible in describing the location of a roadway concern. Helpful information includes the state route and segment number (found on small, white signs along roadways), the direction of travel (eastbound or westbound lane, etc.) and any other useful location information (i.e. landmarks or nearby intersections).

Motorists can use the hot line for any reason, including deer removal, brush and tree removal, shoulder and drainage concerns, signage issues, other maintenance needs, and information, complaints and compliments.
