How to Report a Pothole in New Jersey


They are the bane of roadways throughout the state and wreck havoc on vehicles and their drivers. Not only do New Jersey potholes cause accidents as drivers swerve and skirt around the minefield of ruts in the road, but the dip alone can damage tires, rims, undercarriages, fenders and more. If you fall into one of these highway hazards while driving, report the pothole to the state.

  • Note the address. The street name is important, as are any cross roads. If you can, find the number on the building closest to your pothole. Being as specific as you can will assure that the DOT targets your pothole and not another of the roadway’s pockmarks.

  • Report the pothole and its location by calling the New Jersey Department of Transportation at (800) pot-hole.

  • Go to the website listed below and fill in the required fields (indicated with an asterisk).

  • File a damage claim. If your vehicle was damaged due to a pothole, contact the Department of Treasury Office of Risk Management (see Resources below).
