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.
Please be advised the following report is long overdue. It was not until during my Politics class, that former Senator Craig Stanley directed the class to who we can reach out to further assist in this matter. I moved to New Jersey about 6 years ago and have noticed the block where I reside, has even more potholes. Within the 6 years that I have resided here, I am now witnessing neighborhood blocks within 5 blocks of the distance of where I live are getting new road pavement. I have also noticed new traffic lights are in place, which is incredible given the fact there are schools nearby and this is imperative for the safety of children. Please note, that there are 2 things that are of high importance, and I would greatly appreciate it if this can be addressed as soon as possible. 1st- the entire Ridge Street block (between Park Ave and Bloomfield Ave) needs an entirely new road pavement. Anibal Ramos attached you will find a PDF that contains at least 45 pictures of potholes and the condition our block has been dealing with for at least 6 years. I say at least 6 years because that is when I moved to New Jersey. Finally, due to the safety of our Newark children, it is crucial that traffic lights MUST be implemented on Ridge Street and Bloomfield Ave. I cannot express how many times I have witnessed children trying to cross the road (Ridge Elementary School is near) whilst drivers speed in this area. Please advise of a time frame when our Newark Residents at Ridge Street should expect a response. Very much appreciated, KP
Exiting out of Newark, McCarter Highway, before Meineke cars care center; there is a pothole on the right lane.
The pot while is so big both front tires fit into it 😡
Absolutely ridiculous that I am parked on the side of the road leaking brake fluid with flat tire because of this massive pothole. I am so furious right now, this is not the way I'm supposed to be spending my night waiting for a tow. How do I go about getting reimbursed for this?
The entire street is basically undrivable. Potholes are all over the road all year round. I have to take this road every morning to get to work and I had to replace my wheel bearing twice because of the damage this causes to my car. It is literally impossible to dodge these potholes since they cover the entire road.
There are multiple potholes on Bridge St between Broad St and McCater Highway. Cars have to avoid the potholes for the whole short drive. Thank you
Please help! The noise from when trucks hit the potholes are extremely startling and disrupting of sleep and business. Also vehicle damage
There is a huge pathole right in the middle of the road on Lister Ave by Hello Fresh between the railroad tracks. Sometimes it is impossible to avoid it because of the heavy traffic (buses stopping, people walking in the middle of the road, trucks parked on both sides, other trucks turning in and out, hundreds of cars going both ways especially 6-7 am and 5-6 pm in and out of work). It is just a disaster. Anyway, I hit the pathole yesterday (not the first time) but yesterday it cut my tire on the side. Flat within maybe 2 minutes. It is now trash. Please kindly fix it before someone gets hurt there.
Potholes are TERRIBLE between Stockton Street and Avenue L. Worst ones are at Avenue K. Please fix, VERY dangerous to drive through especially because people are driving on the wrong side of the road to go around these. Please send Help!!!!!!!!and Asphalt!!!!!!
All you hear are loud bangs when trucks drive past. I am a few houses down and I feel my house tremble a little each time.
Route 21 heading north between Center Street and Bridge Street.
The potholes are so huge the trucks try to swerve and miss them almost causing accidents daily. That bridge has no lights at all at night which means if you hit a pot hole and get a flat, You better hope the trucks can see you.
Many potholes along the length of Avenue P--hazardous for truckers and other motorists
Closer to wakeman on the side of the houses. Its about 5 inches wide and ten feet long
