SPRING NOTICE: KEEP MUD OFF PA ROADWAYS

Mud Tracked On Roadways Won't Be Tolerated

CLEARFIELD – PennDOT Engineering District 2 has reminded businesses in its nine-county area about the importance of keeping state highways mud-free this spring season. District 2 PennDOT serves Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Juniata, McKean, Mifflin, and Potter counties.

“Mud tracked onto or deposited on the road can create a hazardous condition for other motorists and will not be tolerated,” said Kevin Kline, District Executive.

PennDOT has informed businesses throughout the nine counties that the property owner, the company in charge of the operation, the vehicle owner and the driver of the vehicle that deposited mud, can all be held responsible and made to pay for any damages resulting from the incident.

PennDOT has instructed its employees to report any mud deposits to Pennsylvania State Police so that citations can be issued and operations shut down until the problem is corrected.


“Safety is our top priority in designing, building and maintaining our highway system”, Kline said. This issue is extremely important as winter ends, spring thaw begins and mud problems become worse.”

###
Note: PA Motor Vehicle Code Section 3709 covers litter,
including the deposit of any dangerous or detrimental substance.
The fine is $300 per occasion.

How do we get the townships to take care of our side roads so that we don't have contend with the potholes as big as your car and mud that goes along with it?

Funny they are so worried about mud on the roads, but don't seem to be focused on the serious condition of the roads.

sometimes when I travel the South Brookland road, I can't believe they keep it open.

How about the manure? Isn't that considered a road hazard as well?

Does not matter if it spills out of the back of a manure spreader or the rear end of a horse, hazards are hazards, right?!

Manure is certainly a hazard!!! Can you imagine hitting that on a motorcycle???

I think this will fit in with the potter co.penndot cycle maint. plan, a road debris crew.supervised by Mr.Majot and Kevin Kline. Do their hands fit a shovel ??????

But it was okay for all the private snow plows to plow across state highways all winter and leave snow and ice all over the roads---no fines there!!!

I watched PENNDOT fill the huge potholes in front of Ritaid with dirt 2 weeks ago. They compacted it and left. Guess what? The rain softened it and made it mud and its all gone now. Be careful pulling into riteaid!!

Here's a novel idea: pave a new road, then 3 months later tar and chip it! That way you forget about the mud. Oops, they already do that. hee hee

If you happen to trave Rt 44 North by Wayne Paving....well for years and I'm sure this year will be no exception they cross the road from pit to pit and the mud is a measurable depth. They have been turned in several times with nothing done. My point, what is this warning, just a waste of paper.

Better yet, they should tar and chip rt. 244 in the fall with limestone and then plow it all off in the winter.

Wait a minute, they just did that. Waste of tax money right there.

Why bitch about the back roads. If you bought a house on a dirt road.....well.....oh ya....ya didn't think it would get muddy and pot wholes in the Spring.

What about Caden's saw mill in Roulette they make a heck of mess there.

Did all of you who are complaining ever stop to think about how you would get to work, get your children to school, etc without pendot taking care of the roads with the anti-skid that you don't seem to like. Yes it may be a pain at times but I bet you'd be home bitching if they weren't out taking care of the roads, too!!!!

its impossible to keep mud off the roads.

what about peepers? every spring our highways are covered with these little hazards. I've tried to talk to them, but they're so arrogant.

Mud antiskid is correct!!!! Then Penn. DOT sweeps it into the ditches in the spring, then it washes into the creeks & rivers. BUT that is OK they are Penn. DOT????
