  • 2353-2399 Horseshoe Road Lancaster, Pennsylvania - US Congressional District PA16

    08/08/2017 Dangerous longitudinal cracks remain on Horseshoe Road (SR 1003) in both East Lampeter Township and Upper Leacock Township. The photos were taken recently near 2366 Horseshoe Road. These cracks, often 2 to 3 inches deep, are particularly dangerous to bicyclists.

    Also, there are potholes along Horseshoe Road at the upper entrance/exit to Conestoga Valley High School.

    These same problems on Horseshoe Road were reported in August 2015 (https://en.seeclickfix.com/issues/1846656). Also, they were reported to PennDOT (20150813-D8-9ZD53F). PennDOT did subsequently repair many of the cracks on Horseshoe Road; however, some cracks were not repaired. Also, where PennDOT did make repairs, large piles of gravel were often left on the edge of the road, again endangering bicyclists and pedestrians.

  • Nutt Road And Main Street Phoenixville, Pennsylvania - Phoenixville

    Traffic that is west-bound on route 23 (Nutt Road) backs up at the traffic light at intersection with Main St./Manavon St. It backs up for a quarter mile or more at rush hour, and even backs up for blocks during non-rush hours. However, traffic in the other directions does not get backed up.

    The traffic signal needs to be changed to a longer green on west-bound route 23.

    Why haven't local officials noticed these things and gotten them corrected?
