PennDOT Issues Spring Notice: Keep Mud off Roadways

PennDOT Issues Spring Notice: Keep Mud off Roadways
Companies reminded of spring conditions

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.

PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to 511pa.com or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions before heading out.

Motorcycles are begining to appear on those warmer days......there are several spots in McKean and Potter counties that can be dicey due to these mud and rock deposits. The 2 biggest I see on a daily basis are the operations on Route 6 between Coudersport and Port Allegany. The first enters Route 6 from the south and is located at the curve to the west side of Potter Pack (between Coudersport and Roullete). The mud is not that heavy here most of the time but can be a big suprise as you exit the turn heading into Coudesport and see a patch of mud. The second and bigger offender is located between Port Allegany and Roullete. The operation enters Route 6 from the North Side on a sloped grade. They generally turn westward and head towards Port Allegany. The east bound lane is generally mud and rock free but the west bound lane has been caked with mud the past couple weeks. Hopefully the recent rains will help clean some of these deposit off. There is nothing more annoying that riding behind a car and have to go through a dust cloud at 55mph and hear the pebbles glancing off your helmet.------Concerned Rider

What about the farmers? Do they also get notices from the state in regards to the "poop" they dump on the roads from their spreaders? Not to mention the mud they then track into the road way from the fields?

Penn DOT spreads MUD type material on the roads all winter long! Just look at the vehicles after driving on them. That's OK though. Its the "State". Multiply that by all of the road miles. Lots of mud flowing downstream, not to mention the salt. But that's OK, its the "State".

Boy, ya ought to drive up Honeoye Street, going outta Shinglehouse. Even on a dry day your car can get coated with mud, a real surprise when you drive up on this mess.
Fine?? Is there no fine for this?? I cannot believe our great State has not got a good fine for this infraction.....if not, should be.
