Reporting Serious NJ State Highway Potholes and Pothole Damage to the NJ Department of Transportation

The snow, sleet and temperature swings during the winter of 2014 have resulted in numerous potholes on local, county and state roads throughout New Jersey. Here in Bergen County, everyone seems to have a pothole story. 

The NJ Department of Transportation offers a New Jersey Commuter Pothole reporting section of their website. If you report on a pothole, tall grass or other maintenance problem on any state highway that is listed on the website, the regional offices of the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will act on your information.

To file a pothole damage claim, contact the Department of Treasury's Office of Risk Management at 609-292-4347 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Potholes should still be reported using the online form on the NJDOT website so necessary repairs can be made.
