Where Are the Worst Potholes in Your Neighborhood?

Let your neighbors know which streets to avoid as PennDOT works to fix roads impacted by winter storms.

This winter has made a mess of area roads. (Patch file photo)

As if the bitter cold, mounds of snow, layers of ice and days without power weren’t enough, this winter is leaving one more disaster in its wake:

Area roads are marred by potholes big enough to swallow a small SUV.

You can report potholes and other maintenance concerns directly to PennDOT at 1-800-FIX-ROAD, but we'd like to hear about them, too.

It's easy to use our interactive map to let others know which roads to avoid:

1) Click "Add" in the upper right corner of the map.

2) Under location, enter an address or intersection. 

3) Click "Submit."

start at old eagle school rd and head west to daylesford. its an obstacle course dodging the potholes. its disgraceful. local townships have a lot of work to do this spring. on conestoga rd in Radnor we still have leaves piled up that were never collected from last fall. good luck.

Exactly Pam. If one was a conspiracy theorist, you would think the auto repairs shops and road crews are in cahoots. Also, I wonder how fast and how well the roads would be repaired if it was NOT a gov't function and some private firms competed for territories (I know some contract with munis, but just imagine if the roads weren't "owned" by a gov't agency.)

Many on Valley Forge Rd in Upper Gwynedd!

Moreland Road starting from the intersection of York Road all the way up to Blair Mill Road... I know you guys have to fix things but couldnt ya fix the crap so that folks can drive/ride on the road that have Fibromyalgia and other complications that need at least a halfway decent road to work? A truck with tar in the back and a guy with a shovel could fix a majority of the holes... but it wouldnt hurt to bring a few big boulders as well...and glue them in place with tar...Not rocket science folks...

Norristown Rd. In Warminster Township between County Line and St. Rd. is bad with potholes. You have to drive carefully. It's ridiculous! Should be fixed already they are getting worse.
Leigh February 25, 2014 at 09:15 AM
While reading the Horsham Patch, I don't want to hear about potholes in all of these other areas. Why is this no longer local?
Carole Davis February 25, 2014 at 09:16 AM
Street Rd. Between Davisville and York Rd, Lower State Rd., Rt 1. Langhorne, Penndel area. Too many roads to mention.
Jere Kane February 25, 2014 at 09:21 AM
My favorite is on the eastbound 700 block of West Miner Street (just east of the intersection with Bradford Avenue). It is gigantic, long and deep and has been growing over the last two weeks and ignored by the Borough and State (it is a state road I believe). It is a disgrace and if they are not going to fix it they should at least put a cone in it to warn unsuspecting motorists.

There is one on Sugartown Road, in Devon, that is so deep, if you look into it, 3 archeologists stare back up at you!
henry eroh February 25, 2014 at 09:57 AM
not only in the neigherhood but everywhere- all the roads are really bad- but the weather is hard on them- plus maybe they could do better redoing them
Nanine d'Onofrio February 25, 2014 at 10:06 AM
On Pawlings Rd. in Schuylkill Township under the railroad bridge just before Ferry Lane. It's nothing but craters. There are daily traffic jams as drivers on both sides have to slow down to ease over the potholes.

In Montgomery County/bucks county, County line Road between Lower State and Kenas going towards 611, there is a very large, deep pothole
felsack February 25, 2014 at 10:20 AM
In Montgomery County, Horsham/Prospectville/Ambler, McKean Road has many between Welsh and Horsham
james koslosky February 25, 2014 at 10:29 AM
Roxborough - ridge ave. between monastery ave. & domino ln. pot holes all along that road.

Potholes from route 352 in East Whiteland Twp. all the way to Immaculata College. Also the underpass on route 352 in East Whiteland Twp.
Debra Watson February 25, 2014 at 11:10 AM
I drive 252 across Rose Tree everyday as mentioned by another, and yes, it's bad. Worse though, is Rt 30 between Old Eagle School and 252. It is horrible. I've even revised my morning commute to cross it at Bridge, rather than drive the short distance to Waterloo (Berwyn). The whole road is a series of potholes, and the turn onto Waterloo? I was crawling through it, and last Friday, when I accidentally turned left off the bridge by habit, I crawled around the turn onto Waterloo, and heard the gravel kicking up under my tires.
Terri Bobick February 25, 2014 at 11:16 AM
when you come off of rt380 and heading toward New Kensington and rt366 it is all bad into New Kensington and coming out.
Evan and Chris Frey February 25, 2014 at 11:17 AM
Two good ones on southbound lane of Radnor Road by the St David's Golf Club.
Scott M February 25, 2014 at 01:05 PM
Philmont Ave, Lower Moreland Twp. The whole stretch between Red Lion Rd and Huntingdon Pk is a WAR ZONE!!! Huntingdon Pike, Mont. Co., many locations between Rockledge Boro and Low. Moreland. Holy Redeemer Hospital is in that area- those ambulance patients must one hell of a ride.

@Kenny Poe -- material expanding and contracting is the nature of all materials, including roadways and patching material. Face-to-face on the iPhone is easy. For those wondering about the "local" Patch, the same story is running in the Pittsburgh marketplace. I think nobody is adding comments from here, but cause Patch is all-but closed down here. The few people remaining at Patch are just using the same story to fill up content across any market, unrelated to location. Since Patch has been bought out, the question now is when will the new owner make changes, and the content of those changes. Or, will they close down many (most?) of the sites, and move to another business model. Until then, Patch is hanging with a very thin thread.
Mike Jones February 25, 2014 at 02:28 PM
Roger... You must be delighted to bring this conversation to a national audience. Yes, the Patch is finished. We established that in August. By now, most of us have moved on to our local papers for news coverage.
Patti Mitchell February 25, 2014 at 04:35 PM
I was meeting friends on Friday night in the Warrington area of Rt. 611, County Line Road, Street Road, etc. I have never seen so many potholes. As I was waiting at the restaurant for my friends, they called and told me that had hit a pothole and had a flat tire. I drove an hour from Collegeville to get there and I was amazed how bad the roads were in that area.
Mary Webb Frazer February 25, 2014 at 05:23 PM
Bring back the local Patch. Why would I read something about a local issue miles and miles from where I live? It OBVIOUSLY defeats the whole purpose of Patch. Are the children running the asylum now?

Marple Rd in Broomall is one of the worst I have experienced.
Sarah Keyes February 25, 2014 at 09:39 PM
The worst pothole is at the corner of Waterloo Rd. and Lancaster Rd in front of Clay's Bakery in Berwyn. It is going to swallow a car soon!
Gina TB February 25, 2014 at 11:57 PM
The whole right hand lane of 611 between Blair Mill Rd and the Turnpike is pothole city. County line Road is a string of potholes. The worst is from 611 west to Stump Road and there are tons of potholes going east past York Road. Its really bad when there are cones in the potholes and you can barely see the top of the cones.
yostplace February 26, 2014 at 09:12 AM
The whole road is a giant pothole on State St (Rt 202) in Doylestown from Del Val College. to Rt 611 bypass. And also Ferry Rd from Rt 313 to Old Ironhill Rd.
George Hughes February 27, 2014 at 07:27 PM
I thought this was p hoenixville patch . Why am I reading about potholes everywhere but ?
Mike Jones February 28, 2014 at 01:56 PM
It's because this story is cross-posted across every Patch in Pennsylvania, so you're reading everyone's comments. I live in suburban Pittsburgh.
