BCEO POTHOLE PATROL IN ACTION

Butler County Engineer Dean C. Foster reports that BCEO crews are in the process of filling and patching potholes on all County roads. Five crews have been assigned to pothole patrol full time until the majority of potholes have been filled.

"The pothole problem is quite severe right now. Motorists should use caution," advised Foster. "We are concentrating on all roads throughout the entire County roadway system; however, some are in worse shape than others. We have one to two crews focusing almost entirely on Trenton Franklin Road for example. Other problem roads include West Chester Road, Allen Road, Hamilton Mason Road, and Layhigh Road."

Potholes are a byproduct of harsh winter weather such as that experienced here in Butler County the first two weeks of January. The combination of salt, plowing, and in particular, the cycle of freezing and thawing is extremely hard on roadway surfaces.

Motorists wishing to report their favorite pothole on a County road may contact the Butler County Engineer's Office at 867-5744 or 424-9144.
