UNION COUNTY, NJ - With the winter weather that has just passed, 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 Bruce Bergen. “A pothole lives on until reported.”

The online form lists only County roads.
