With the winter weather finally winding down, potholes are a frequent issue for drivers. 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 certainly encourage drivers and commuters to report any pothole they encounter on roads throughout Union County to the responsible authority," said Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “A pothole lives on until reported.”
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.
