Report a Pothole

The weather is cold, then warm, then cold, then...potholes start showing up.  This time of year can wreak havoc on a road when water gets into cracks and freezes, then thaws, then freezes, etc.  The expansion and contraction can create a perfect opportunity for a portion of the road to break up and now you have a pot hole.

Newtown Township's Public Works Department has been out a couple of times already this season repairing potholes.  We also notify PennDOT when potholes are found on State Roads.

Here is how you can help.

To report a pothole or other concern on any TOWNSHIP road please contact Newtown Township’s Public Works Department  We will address all concerns on Township roads as soon as possible.  For your convenience, use this link to submit your concern through Citizen Request Tracker. If it is an emergency you can also call the Township (610-356-0200) or email the Public Works Department at pw@newtowntownship.org .  However, the  Citizen Request Tracker provides the greatest information and helps both Public Works and you as the reporter track the response to the request.

To report a pothole or other concern on any STATE road (West Chester Pike / Rt. 3, Newtown Street Road / Rt. 252, Bishop Hollow Road, Bryn Mawr Avenue, Goshen Road, Media Line Road, St. Davids Road, Newtown Road, Church Road and portions of Gradyville Road) please contact PennDOT at 1-800-FIX-ROAD or by submitting your concern electronically via the PennDOT District 6 Customer Care Center.  It is important for you to submit a concern on a State Road directly to them, so that they can keep you updated as to its progress.  Plus, they will get the message more quickly when you send it right to them.

You can find lots of other information about the road system on the Public Works web pages.

Thank you for being our "eyes on the street" and letting us know when you see a pot hole or any other road concern.
