A brain-rattling ride in Adelphi

Who's responsible: Maryland State Highway Administration
Number of votes for this fix: 3

The road surface at the intersection of Riggs Road/Route 212 and Adelphi Road is in terrible shape. There are car-rattling patch jobs and old, deep ruts that make it impossible to steer your vehicle any way but straight.

The intersection hasn't been paved since 1999 and is basically nearing the end of its usability, said David Buck, a spokesman with the Maryland State Highway Administration.

Luckily, help is on the way, thanks to the federal stimulus package. The intersection is part of a more than $4 million federal resurfacing contract that covers eight locations in Prince George's County. This particular one will be repaved sometime before mid-November, Buck said.
