FEDERALSBURG, Md.- If you head down Route 318 in Federalsburg, you are in for a bumpy ride.
"I am very frustrated," said remarked driver Samuel Elzey.
"On a scale of one to 10... 10. If not I can go higher but it's bad real bad and if you don't have to use it don't use it," said Clifton Burton of Federalsburg.
The Maryland State Highway Administration blames pavement failure for all of the potholes along Route 318. The SHA said pavement failure leading to so many potholes is rare, but officials are looking into a permanent fix.
Between 60 and 100 potholes were temporarily fixed by the SHA. While the road is better, drivers like Elzey are still feeling the effects.
"The front end of my car [was affected] because it sits low," Elzey said. "It kind of like scraped and I was concerned it was going to tear my car up."
And Elzey is not alone; Burton calls the road a safety hazard.
"It's bad on the cars and stuff, the suspensions and I know one gentlemen who busted a tire going over them, so it's a hazard," he said.
A spokesperson for the SHA said Route 318 road was last repaved in 2008 and this many potholes is highly uncommon.
