N Mt Lebanon Rd is a series of connected patches. The patches are frequently repaired but have a short half-life as the road is very steep and runoff is violent after any rainfall. Driveway entrances are frequently undermined due to the turbulence of the water flowing down the hill which quickly dislodges the patches, however well repaired. Patching does not remedy the fundamental problem. A complete renovation is required.

Route 517 is really bad on the northbound side about 3-4 miles south of the intersection with Long Valley. There is a farm there and it floods whenever it rains and they patch it but it's a mess and really needs to be repaved.
