The roads in Pennsylvania SUCK! They are not properly maintain nor have they been. If you complain or report a problem and they don't fix it right their attitude is they'll comeout again if they have to.
It's not about more money but the waste of money. They do NOT maintain the roads. They might resurface stretches of road and fix the occassional pothole but they do NOT maintain roads including putting tar/sealer in cracks which turn into water leaks which undermine the foundation or footing of the road causing sink holes and more movement/damage. They also fail to fix potholes correctly frequently dumping asphalt only without adding or fixing a stone bedding.
And many of the roads that need resurfacing are forced to wait for YEARS while good roads get resurfaced unnecessarily or too soon. Was told the politicians used to and still do like to resurface major roads in a big election year for them to show they are supposedly doing something.
Pennsylvania doesn't make a big enough effort to clean up construction debris which acts as sand paper grinding up a road. They do not pitch the road correctly which causes more water problems. Road maintenance departments also fail to go after the untilities which frequently have collapsing manholes and underground conduit runs which crack roads and/or turn into to sinkholes.
How about actually MAINTAINING the roads and not 'redoing' every couple years.
