W. Pa. transit buses change routes due to potholes

Posted: Updated:

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - The brutal winter has prompted pothole complaints across the state, but they're so bad in one western Pennsylvania town that the county transit agency is rerouting buses around one especially bad section of road.

CamTran, which runs the buses in Cambria County, says its buses won't use a six-block section of Solomon Run Road in Johnstown until it's fixed.

The road is pockmarked by potholes, made worse by the fact that the road hasn't been properly resurfaced because of ongoing sewer work.

Motorist Jana Young tells WJAC-TV the road has already ruined one of her cars saying it's "like medieval times, driving through a peasant village."

CamTran spokesman Josh Yoder says the buses will be rerouted until the transit agency determines the road is safe for its vehicles and passengers.
