Marshall makes it easier to figure out who to call when potholes emerge

Marshall Township is on the hunt for those pesky potholes that can chew up a tire or front end.

But not all the roads in town are the responsibility of the municipality.

To help residents figure out which agency to contact when a pothole pops up, the township has published a guide.

The online list includes street names, the type or class of road it is, and whose job it is to fix them.

Township roads are marked with a “T,” roads for which Allegheny County is responsible are marked with a “C” and state maintained roads have an “S” designation.

Private roads, which are the responsibility of the owners, are marked with a “P.”

The numbers to report potholes or other road problems are:

• Allegheny County: 412-350-4636

• PennDOT: 1-800-FIX-ROAD or online .

• Marshall: 724-935-3090

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
