Traffic, road problems continue to plague city

Members of St. Marys City Council have received numerous complaints regarding deteriorating road conditions on both state and local roads, most of which are due to construction or are weather related. City Councilman Gary Anderson asked what PennDOT's reaction was to council's inquiring about road conditions at the intersection on State Street, Arch Street, Mill Street and Vine Road. City Manager Dave Green said when the weather clears up PennDOT plan to have road crew members lay two to three inches of asphalt as a temporary fix on State Street, portions of South St. Marys Street and the Mill Street intersection."The initial contact was they were not going to do anything, but later on when PennDOT representatives came up from Clearfield and looked at it, they agreed they needed to do something," Greene said.
