UNION COUNTY, NJ - With the milder weather arriving, potholes once again become the bane of many commuters, but there are resources you can use to report them to the proper agency.
“The weather may change, but a pothole lives on until it is repaired,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen. “That’s why we certainly encourage drivers and commuters to report any pothole they encounter on roads throughout Union County.”
County roads are identified by their blue route signs, which include the letters "CR" followed by a three-digit number.
To report a pothole or any other issue with a county road, use an online form available through the Union County Department of Public Works and Facilities Management at http://www.ucnj.org/pot-hole/
