State ready to piggyback on pothole request
Getting There's search for the state's worst potholes has drawn the attention of the State Highway Administration, which stands ready to fill in cavities on the roads it maintains.
SHA spokesman Dave Buck said the agency would like to know about any potholes Marylanders spot on numbered routes outside Baltimore city. The city maintains all roads -- except for Interstates 95, 395 and 895 -- within its borders. The counties, generally, maintain roads with names but no numerical routes. (Something like First Street doesn't count as a numerical route.)
Here's the SHA message:
We'll be keeping an eye out for any responses to your "worst pothole" request on your blog and will forward immediately to our maintenance folks. If on an SHA maintained road (numbered routes statewide not including Baltimore City), people can always go onto our website at www.roads.maryland.gov and there is a link at the bottom for pothole requests.
There's no reason you can't let us both know about your "favorite" pothole. Send pictures.
