The roads in our city are showing the signs of another tough winter. Potholes are everywhere. Please help us and report any potholes that you have encountered while driving around the city. I'll send a report to the right folks in City Hall so we can get our roads fixed.
Very dangerous conditions! There are a dozen collective potholes spanning from the corner of Madison and McClellan st. to to when McClellan which leads into the 1&9 Highway. This is an extremely unsafe situation! I have destroyed several tires and almost got into accidents due to cars swerving away from these craters! Please it has been over 5 years and this street has never been paved. They occasionally cover these holes but it resurfaces quickly. This is unsafe and not acceptable.
this whole area has been reworked and patched it is just nasty it's very much like the area on Lake Street between Heller Parkway in Verona Avenue. The area South of Broadway until McCarter Highway isn't much better. Avoid this road at all costs! Luckily I haven't had to drive over it too often but I am at the library and my doctors offices on that corner
Well according to Subaru because I have an all-wheel drive it looks like I have to replace all 4 tires not just the two that I mentioned previously. Totals going to be for $510 with an alignment because it threw off my alignment as well I'm at Pep Boys now. Hope the city plans on reimbursing me for my tires. I would attach a photo but it's too big for this website
Hi! I'm going to post another area that has been a source of angst for me for some time... That is the Lake Street area especially from the Verona to Heller Street Parkway area. This whole Road needs to be replaced it is just written with patches and holes and pets and goalies swallows your car. And this is the way I usually take to church. Thankfully I have gotten smart and have been taking DeGraw lately but Lake Street is pretty awful the south side of Heller Parkway as well. Down to Bloomfield Avenue. Watch driving over this area! City I please hope you expect to pay for my new tires since Pep Boy says it is due to the potholes I am forced to drive over
Hi I live on Verona Avenue and there are three to four very large pot holes that go all the way down to the brick and they're quite wide they're hard to mess. I also have to drive down to Elizabeth down Route 21 quite a bit and there are quite a number of potholes from 3rd Avenue down to South Street that are also hard to avoid there is much uneven surface in that area as well. Main Avenue that runs along Route 21 is just plain awful from like Verona Street to the on-ramp Route 21 is just awful there are number of potholes uneven surfaces and a whole lot of raised manholes in that area it's just awful. I just went to Pep Boys and they said I have two new bubbles on my back to tires and I'm going to have to spend $300 to get my tires replaced I would really appreciate assistance from the city as it's due to your potholes they said.
There are several gigantic potholes on this small stretch of street. I use this route every day during my commute and I am very nervous that my car will sustain damage. Please help.
Our entire street is a mess there are two large holes the size of a van and it cant be avoid plus its a one way. We are near rt. 21 at the bottom near Chester Avenue
Drain is sinking into the ground
McCarter Hwy, in general, the ENTIRE street up from coming off Route 21 bridge to the intersection with Clay Street is terrible. I've gotten 2 flat tires within a week already from the potholes because I can't avoid them at all when there's two lanes and people are next to me. I don't want to cause an accident so I risk my tires and pray they don't become flat. I've had TWO flat tires, and ONE already has massive bubbles that I had to replace as well. I'm very annoyed with this and can't even drive to work without worrying about paying for another tire! I want McCarter Hwy AND Broad St to be fixed, they are both terrible with the potholes!
Last night on my way home I hit a pothole that destroyed my tire and rim. The pothole was a extremely large and would be impossible to miss with going into oncoming traffic. here are over 5 different major potholes and a dozen collective potholes spanning from the corner of Madison and McClellan st. to to when McClellan which leads into the 1&9 Highway. This is an extremely unsafe situation.
There are a total of 15 potholes on Lister Ave, between Lockwood and the Benjamin Moore facility entrance. The largest, in the attached picture, measures 12ft long x 8ft wide x 8in deep. These conditions make it incredibly challenging for our employees and delivery drivers to enter and exit the facility safely each day.
It is in front of our business. Cars come and go all the time.
manhole cover is degraded and asphalt surrounding it has eroded. the ground is being undermined from the damage making the pothole bigger. PLEASE FIX
Most of lake street is a total wreck. I live at 788 lake st between Grafton and Heller and we have been waiting 3 years for our street to be repaved (it's beyond a simple repair). with lake street being main throughway a constant flow of cars and trucks are recklessly swerving all over the road from one side to the other into on coming traffic to avoid the destruction and chaos of giant pot holes that just get worse every day. add speeding maniacs to the equation and we have a war zone for children and pedestrians alike. We need a speed bump as well, many streets in our area have them and they work amazing. We have contacted every agency know to Newark with no reply and you are our last hope. Please Help get our street safe again for everyone who lives here. Don't let someone get killed before you do somthing.
8-10 pot holes on entire block from Summer Ave to Broadway. Some of the neighbors even spray painted yellow paint around them to make them noticeable at night to avoid vehicle damages.
The whole street is riddled with potholes. The street looks like an alleyway which makes it look dangerous at night. The street needs a lot of work and although it is a small street It should be made a one-way in order to have proper traffic flow.
Doremus Avenue from the turnpike ramp to Wilson Ave is HORRIBLE. Truacks, buses, and cars have to drive on the wrong side of the road in several area to avoid potholes that more than 6" deep and as much 3' in diameter. Pictures and the repair bills for dozens of people's suspension repair and wheel alignments will be forthcoming,
