‘You Got to Play Football Around These Joints. Real Rap': Fixing the Worst Potholes in Philadelphia

You’ve heard it before. The grunts and groans as drivers slam into a pothole. The fix is in, people. Hold (that steering wheel) tight.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's army of staff pavers and contractors will be filling potholes on more than 70 state highways next week to repair deteriorated pavement across the Philadelphia region.

"You got to play football around these joints, real rap. Are you really swerving? Swerving left and right," Kevin Brookins, who commutes along 65th Street in West Philadelphia, said of his daily drive. "You got to go 10 mph just to go around anything."
