The department has prioritized $22.3 million for immediate pothole repairs through June 30, which translates into nearly 30,000 tons of patching material. An additional $7 million will be invested in seven interstate maintenance projects covering potholes and other repairs on 78 miles of roads this year.“PennDOT has been at work on this problem for many months, but the severe temperature swings through the winter have created ideal conditions for continued pavement challenges,” Governor Wolf said. “We are further increasing our focus on pothole repairs and also accelerating much-needed work on our interstates.”Motorists can report potholes and other highway-maintenance concerns on state routes at www.customercare.penndot.gov or by calling PennDOT’s toll-free hotline at 1-800-FIX-ROAD (1-800-349-7623).Take a look at the coverage below: Beaver County Times: Wolf allocates $180 million for pothole repair, interstate resurfacingWolf has told PennDOT to spend whatever possible on pothole and pavement repairs, and it has pushed $22.3 million toward pothole repairs through June.

Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros TEMPE, Ariz. — The Angels added another experienced reliever to their bullpen mix by agreeing to terms with veteran lefty Dan Jennings on a minor-league deal Friday, according to a source.Jennings, 31, has a career 2.96 ERA over parts of seven big-league seasons.He had a 3.22 ERA in 72 games with the Milwaukee Brewers last year. Left-handed hitters batted .226 with a .570 OPS against him last season.The Brewers non-tendered him rather than paying him a salary of about $1.5 million in arbitration. Jennings joins a bullpen mix that was without an experienced lefty. The top relievers on the depth chart are all right-handed, with Williams Jerez as the most likely lefty to have a chance to pitch in the majors. Jennings will make $1 million if he makes the Angels’ squad, with another potential $500,000 in performance bonuses.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
