PennDOT Answers Questions After Oil & Chip Mess
UNION TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- PennDOT is now responding to a lot of drivers' questions and concerns after cars got caked with tar and stones on a recently treated road in Luzerne County. PennDOT says it shouldn't have happened and defends why it was treating that road in the first place. A spokesperson for PennDOT told us the process of oil and chipping is commonly used to keep roads in good shape and acts as a sealant. That's what PennDOT crews did on Route 239 near Shickshinny on Monday. On Tuesday, it caused problems for drivers and PennDOT says something went wrong.
