Potholes. Anyone hitting Philadelphia area roads seemingly has been dealing with them recently. We all seem to have our own "the worst pothole" story.

Now, PennDOT is trying to fix the pothole problem by deploying road crews onto more than 55 stretches of state routes in southeastern Pennsylvania.

The pothole patrol was expected to continue working this week, PennDOT said. Expect some slowdowns and lane closures on roads from U.S. Route 202 in Bucks County to U.S. Route 30 in Chester County to Interstate 476 (the Blue Route) in Delaware County to U.S. Route 422 in Montgomery County to the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) in Philadelphia as roving crews lay down asphalt to fix the bumps in the roads. (Get the full list of roads being fixed below.)

"Crews will restrict travel lanes on these state highways to patch areas of deteriorating pavement," PennDOT said in a news release. "Motorists are advised to be alert of this moving operation and to expect intermittent lane closures and possible slowdowns when driving near work crews."

The plan is to make the fixes throughout the week, PennDOT said. So far in 2022, PennDOT said it already put down more than 2,070 tons of asphalt to repair potholes around the Philly region.
