HARRISBURG (AP) Drivers across the state will be getting some relief from pockmarked roadways in the form of $180 million to fill in potholes and perform other work after the ravages of a tough winter.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf announced $22 million for pothole and pavement repairs, enough to buy nearly 30,000 tons of paving material.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) burned through nearly 23,000 tons of asphalt to repair potholes through the end of April. It used about 15,000 tons over the same period last year and in 2016.

The state also plans to spend $7 million on interstate maintenance work; $30 million for interstate upgrades; $60 million for resurfacing; and $62 million in interstate preservation.

PennDOT said the public can report potholes and other maintenance problems online or by calling 1-800-FIXROAD.
