Burlington County Freeholder Director Bruce Garganio announced today that the Board of Chosen Freeholders has approved a Countywide Pothole Mitigation Plan.
“This winter season has brought with it fluctuating temperatures causing rapid freezing and thawing of moisture under roadways, bringing rise to a large amount of potholes,” said Director Garganio. “To combat this, we are asking our towns to join with us in addressing this important public safety issue.”
The Board of Chosen Freeholders has established a shared services agreement to offer free asphalt “patch” to municipalities willing to assist with the filling of potholes on County roads.
“This shared service will allow for the timely patching of damaged roadways throughout the County,” explained Garganio.
“In addition, the County recently purchased and began utilizing a state-of-the-art pothole repair machine dubbed the “Pot Hole Killer,” Garganio added. “This will increase productivity and allow us to better maintain the county’s 508 miles of roads.”
Municipalities interested in participating in this program can contact the County’s Division of Roads and Bridges at (609) 726-7300.
“To ensure that our roads are quickly and effectively restored to the condition that our traveling public deserves, we are asking residents to assist in reporting areas of road damage,” Garganio concluded.
“Residents can report damages by calling the Burlington County Pothole Hotline at (609) 265-5021 or via social media on Facebook at BurlingtonCountyNJ or on Twitter using the handle @BurlCoNJ.”
