DPW crews work to patch potholes across Cherry Hill

(Cherry Hill, N.J.) – Winter's continuous cycle of freezing and thawing had led to a significant increase in the number of potholes affecting municipal roadways in recent weeks.

In response, the Cherry Hill Township Department of Public Works has launched an aggressive campaign to identify and repair the affected areas.

Beginning this week, designated Public Works crews have been assigned to seek out and fix these potholes, caused by the repeated freezing and thawing of road surfaces in the past two months. Each crew has been assigned a service area, and will spend the coming days, weather permitting, touring every inch of nearly 260 miles of roadway maintained by Cherry Hill.

But with 260 miles of roads to maintain, residents often serve as the first line of defense in helping the Township to identify problem spots. Residents who see a pothole on a local road should contact DPW immediately by calling (856) 424-4422.

Additionally, potholes can be reported 24 hours a day through the Report a Pothole link on the Township Web site, by clicking here.

Some roads within Cherry Hill are maintained by either the New Jersey Department of Transportation, or the Camden County Department of Public Works. Click here for a list of these roads and their respective contact information. Potholes reported on State- and County-owned roads through our website will be routed to the proper authority.

This expanded pothole response team will remain in effect for as long as needed – until the volume of calls has diminished and crews cease to spot problem areas through the course of their shifts.

This cooperative effort will allow us to remain proactive in keeping our roadways safe as we emerge from this winter and look toward spring.
