Dear Resident:


Marlboro Township has launched an on-line pothole reporting system called the ‘Pothole Portal’. This system will allow any Marlboro resident to log in and report potholes encountered on Marlboro roadways.  The Township homepage www.marlborotownship-nj.gov will feature a ‘Pothole Portal’ link to the on-line reporting system.  The reporting form may also be accessed directly here www.marlboro-nj.gov/pothole-report.html

Potholes following any winter are expected, but this year’s severe weather took an enormous toll on roads throughout New Jersey. Marlboro is 32.5 square miles and we are responsible for the upkeep of 200 miles of roads.  Information provided by our residents who drive our streets every day can be very helpful in directing resources to the areas most in need.

The Department of Public Works (DPW) has begun to fill potholes this past Saturday, addressing locations called into DPW or the Marlboro Police Department.  Four trucks were deployed from 8am to 4pm, and more than 1,000 potholes were filled throughout town using roughly 26 tons of cold patch material.  It takes approximately 10 minutes for one truck to prepare and fill an average size pothole.  DPW pothole repair crews will be on the roads again today and will continue through the remainder of the winter season, weather permitting. 

The short on-line form requires your name, address, and contact information as well as details of the pothole location such as the nearest house number or cross street.  This will enable DPW to locate and repair the pothole as quickly as possible.   Residents without computer access may telephone the Marlboro DPW at (732) 536-0188 to report the location of the pothole.

Many of Marlboro’s roads are County or State owned.  Potholes on non-Township owned roads should be reported to directly to the appropriate transportation agency.  The State has an on-line reporting system at http://www.state.nj.us/transportation/commuter/potholeform.shtm. County potholes should be called into (732) 431-6550. County or State roads reported through Marlboro’s Pothole Portal will be relayed to the correct agency. 

The Police Division of Traffic and Safety reminds residents to obey all traffic laws when reporting a pothole. Your cooperation and assistance are greatly appreciated as DPW works to repair our roads.

Mayor Jon Hornik
