Were the potholes in your area patched?

If you spot (or feel) a pothole, list it below so we can submit an updated list to the Township.

Should your vehicle body be damaged from the pothole, you should file a police report. You can then use the report to file a claim.

(You can report potholes to the DPW at 732-905-3405.)

To file a claim:

You must first determine if the pothole incident occurred on a Township, County, State highway or on a toll road.

For incidents on County roads, you can call the purchasing department at 732-929-2101. For Lakewood, you can call 732.364.2500.

If your accident was on the Garden State Parkway or the New Jersey Turnpike, please visit http://www.state.nj.us/turnpike/maintenance-issue.html or call 732-750-5300.

Accidents on the Atlantic City Expressway are handled by the South Jersey Transportation Authority. You may visit their website www.sjta.com or call 609-965-6060.

If it occurred on a New Jersey State-owned highway, you may fill out the PROPERTY DAMAGE CLAIM-SHORT FORM.

The Registered Owner, and not the driver, of the damaged vehicle must complete, sign and date the Notice of Claim and mail it to the address on the form within 90 days from the date of the incident to preserve their legal rights. The preferred method is via certified mail return receipt requested. Please keep copies of the claim form and submittals for your records.

The claim form must, at a minimum, include:

(a) An estimate for repairs and/or a receipt showing proof of payment for any repairs made;
(b) Specific location where the incident occurred (nearest exit, mile post, cross street, relevant landmarks, etc.)
(c) A copy of an official police report, if one was filed at the time of the incident;
(d) A copy of the Declaration page of the auto policy for the registered owner of the vehicle. However, photos of the pothole are not necessary.
5. Please allow 3 to 6 months for your claim to be resolved. You should note that payment/reimbursement is not guaranteed.

  1. Oak st between Albert & NH looks like the streets been bombed,this streets problems have been known for a few years but still nothing has been done to fix & repave

  2. LOL I recognize that photo already, it’s from Oak Street between Albert and New Hampshire.
    It’s already the joke of the neighborhood.
    We are feeling as if nothing is getting done for us.
    Politics politics.

    The wait time at the new street light is just crazy.

  3. Same mayor And committee men being elected.. we pay from the highest taxes in the the country! For what ??? Why should we be paying 10-20k in property taxes and get ni services. Who is fighting for us ??

  4. Needs to be said again:
    Oak between new Hampshire and Albert!
    It is one block but it’s terrible all the time. They keep patching it (not even properly, sometimes they throw on some sand and gravel and call it a day). I go down that block often and it is beyond me how they can’t fix one block! I try to be understanding but this is ridiculous. This is going on for years

  5. Clover between 88 and Cedarbridge has a couple of potholes but more importantly has really eneven paving, Dips and protruding manhole covers. I drive down that way multiple times a day and it’s terrible for the car. If you see someone swerving theyre just trying to avoid them.

  6. New Hampshire south of 70 down to at least Lucy Street — It us beyond being repaired — it needs to be replaced.
    Brooke north of County Line by shopping center that seems to have stalled. Street is filled with pot holes and craters from the street not being filled in properly by builders.

  7. Oak street isn’t getting repacked as once a street gets repacked no new construction can take place. Good chance some developers have some grand plan for the block and therefore the powers don’t want it paved

  8. The entire Pawnee road is one colossal pothole! This forgotten road always looks as if an earthquake just hit it, and often not only cars but pedestrians too cannot safely traverse this road without being subjected to damage and/or injury. It needs to be gutted and repaired immediately. Of course, I don’t expect this; just simply venting my frustration. Thank you

  9. Whatever happened with that large gas tax that we are all paying for? Wasn’t it for improved roads??? Never forget how much more you are paying for gas because of the people in trenton!!

  10. Squankum Rd. from intersection at Kennedy northbound for about 100 feet to Coleman Ave.
    Squankum Rd. from E. County Line Rd. southbound and northbound to appox. 9th Street.

  11. Washington at Pine Street. going South we are forced to ride the sholder. Please make the intersection (Washington) a little wider, before the Builders take the land.

  12. There are some real bad potholes on Carey street between Clifton & Lexington. Also, Lexington Ave. is SO broken up, it’s really almost an emergency to have it repaired ASAP. Than you.

  13. Miller Road is atrocious for potholes beginning at the intersection of New Egypt Road and heading towards New Central Avenue. I do not know how residents of this street can endure such horrible road conditions on a daily basis.

  14. Miller Road between Central and New Central has a huge very deep pothole. The entire Central especially between Miller and West Gate also has some very big potholes. What is taking so long? Don’t we pay you enough taxes?!

  15. Oak between Albert and NH!!!!!!!! Its like driving on the moon except we don’t have moon mobiles. The patches are not sufficient, it’s still extremely rocky. A permanent fix is needed time to pave the road properly. Williams St between prospect and cedar ct. should be renamed moon lane and a sign should be posted drive thru at your own risk. We could settle for anything less than a permanent fix. Otherwise the problem needlessly perpetuates.

    Maybe if we keep writing it, it will get fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
