This year's harsh winter weather along with the freeze-thaw cycle is playing havoc on asphalt roads throughout the municipality, county and state. Many road conditions have gone from bad to worse. Our Department of Public Work crews are actively out and about filling potholes as quickly as possible however, crews have been forced to repairs sections of roads that require urgent repairs first.
If you see a dangerous pothole hazard, please contact the Department of Public Works so we can address the problem. You can report a pothole by phone at 732-938-4500 ext. 2450, email at DPWoffice@twp.howell.nj.us or via the township website. There also is a simple web form on the front page of the website under "Top Pages" to allow residents to report a pothole as well as a link below.
Not all our roads are maintained by the township but all complaints will be handled by the township and forwarded to the proper authority. ( State or County)
Potholes can be extremely dangerous, especially in wet or dark conditions. We would like to remind all residents to always drive to the road conditions and if you find you’re approaching potholes, please slow down and drive carefully.
