It’s been a long winter, but we are rounding the corner and spring is in our sight. The weather this week is finally giving us the big thaw that we need to get out from under these huge snow piles.
As the snow melts, and after weeks of plowing and salting County roads, Monmouth County Department of Public Works and Engineering crews have transitioned over to the next phase of operation: pothole repair on County Roads. Residents can report a pothole on a County road by calling the Monmouth County Highway Division of the Department of Public Works and Engineering at 732-431-6550. If you come across a pothole on a State highway, you should report it to the NJ DOT at their website. Potholes on local roads should be reported to the appropriate local municipality. Please do not use 911 to report a pothole, as the 911 service needs to be used for emergencies.

The Monmouth County Highway Division is asking residents to report potholes on County roads by calling 732-431-6550. County roads have pentagon shaped blue signs with gold letters.
The division is transitioning from plowing and salting roads to permanently repairing potholes that occurred over the course of the winter.
Monmouth County Public Works Highway crews repair potholes on County roads.
“There are nine Highway Division crews going out on the County roads every day to look for and repair potholes,” said Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Public Works and Engineering. “The Highway crews are also responding to reports of potholes from police departments and residents that come in all hours of the day and night.”
Arnone said that the potholes are filled with recycled asphalt from other county road projects and other potholes, producing a cost savings for Monmouth County property tax payers.

Marquettes Roach (left) and Richard Kosch (right) of the Public Works Department repair a large pothole on Hope Road at the corner of Sycamore Avenue. In the background is one of the “See a Pothole?” signs.
Tinton Falls Mayor Michael Skudera announced that the borough is having its annual See a Pothole campaign for the next two weeks.
“Last year the program worked very well, so I decided to do it again” said Skudera “Road repairs and infrastructure improvements have been a top priority for my administration and the Borough Council”.
Large signs have been posted throughout the borough which read: “Tinton Falls Residents… See a Pothole in Town?”
These signs direct residents to visit the borough’s website at www.TintonFalls.com where a Service Request Form makes reporting a pothole quick and easy. The form alerts the Public Works Department in real-time of the locations of any potholes that are reported. Residents will automatically receive a tracking number after submitting the form.
Additionally residents may report potholes by calling 732-542-3400 ext. 4.
