N.J. Leases ‘Pothole Killer’ Trucks That Fill In Road Craters In 30 To 90 Seconds

potholesThey are called the “Pothole Killers.” That’s the nickname for a fleet of trucks that can fix head-jolting cracks, crevices and craters in less time than it takes for a traffic light to change. And they’ve arrived in New Jersey to do some massive road repairs — just in time for pothole season.

With spring weather uncovering pockmarked roadways across New Jersey, officials will announce today that the state Department of Transportation has signed a $337,000 contract to lease six Pothole Killer trucks to hit the roads through the summer. Full story in Star ledger.

  1. How about the holes on county line road around the rail tracks? These have been there for months and are slowly ruining my vehicles.

  2. # 1 It said NJ DOT, County Line road is a county road not a state road, so slow down and avoid the potholes and save your car and maybe a life.

  3. We probably will not see any of these trucks in Lakewood, because, hey! According to our leadership the DPW does a terrific job. Its funny how you still see the same potholes from last years snow storm’s. Great Job DPW!!!!

  4. county line is so somebody can take credit for paving it – save the day, sadly right now the car repair people are the ones making money
    or happily as long as someone is making money in this economy

  5. c’line rd at the tracks is the railroads problem. its in their right of way. call them and complain. same as rt 9 and c’line and kennedy and rt 9, but its the states right of way.
