MAHONING TWP., Pa. - Police in part of Carbon County say several motorists were cited after driving on a freshly paved road that was closed to traffic.
Workers in Mahoning Township had closed part of Ashtown Drive for paving on Wednesday.
While they were working on the road, police say a driver failed to obey the road closure sign and drove through the hot asphalt, nearly striking a worker.
Crews had to quickly repair the damage done by the car before the asphalt hardened.
While police were on the scene, they cited six motorists for failing to obey the road closure signage.
