Although it was a mild winter, potholes opened up on numerous local roadways. This week, PennDOT crews will be out patching them.

The state transportation department said crews will be working along River Road (Route 32 in Lower Makefield, Solebury, and Upper Makefield townships during the week.

PennDOT officials said crews will hit more than 40 state roads and highways in the five-county Philadelphia region this week.

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

Since the start of the year, PennDOT has used more than 1,528 tons of asphalt to repair potholes across the five-county Philadelphia region.
