As the winter season comes to an end, pothole season is just beginning. The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders would like you to know there are resources you can use to report them to the proper agency.
“We encourage drivers and pedestrians alike to report any pothole they come across, so repair crews can act as quickly as possible,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “Even if you think someone else already reported it, please take a few minutes to fill out the online form or call our hotline number.”
To report a pothole or any other issue with a Union County road, use an online form available through the Union County Department of Public Works and Facilities Management at ucnj.org/pot-hole.
County roads are identified by their blue route signs, which include the letters “CR” followed by a three-digit number.
Persons without Internet access can report potholes on Union County roads by calling 908-789-3660.
For potholes on state highways, call the New Jersey Department of Transportation at 1-800-POTHOLE or use the online form at state.nj.us/transportation.
For local roads, contact the municipality in which the road is located. Links for all 21 Union County municipalities are available through the County website, ucnj.org/municipalities.
