you may be dodging potholes.  These roads are classified as “state roads” and as such the Commonwealth (PennDOT) maintains them.  Perkasie Borough does not maintain or repair these roads. [The Borough does have a winter maintenance agreement with PennDOT to plow and salt all of these roads except for Ridge Road (entire length) and Walnut Street from Constitution Avenue to the border with Hilltown.]

Let PennDOT know if you have concerns about the conditions on any of these roads.  The PennDOT Customer Care Center (CCC) is a portal for the residents of Pennsylvania to submit their concerns. http://www.dot.state.pa.us/penndot/districts/district6/d6ccc.nsf

PennDOT defines a Concern as something that requires PennDOT attention for resolution such as potholes, drainage issues, or deer carcass removal. 

A concern should not be submitted for immediate needs or issues that could create safety concerns, like missing signs or roadway hazards. If the concern requires immediate attention, please call 1-800-FIX-ROAD to be connected directly to the county maintenance office in your area. PennDOT requests that you refrain from using derogatory language whenever submitting a concern.

For Emergencies, please call 911 in addition to submitting the concern for PennDOT review.
