At the request of the State Department of Transportation Commissioner James Simpson I am including herewith the text of a letter which provides important information regarding pothole repairs.
Very truly yours,

Re: Pothole Assistance from DOT
The extreme weather we endured this winter virtually assures a bumper crop of potholes this spring.
To expedite roadway repairs, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) wants you to know how easy it is to report potholes, without having to call or write a letter. If you spot a pothole on a state roadway or receive a complaint from a resident, help is just a “click” away. Just go to: www.nj.gov/transportation
When the NJDOT home page appears, simply click on the Pothole Reporting Link. There you will find easy to follow instructions on how to report a pothole, roadway debris, litter, graffiti and – even animal carcasses. The site also provides links to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, NJ TRANSIT and county pothole hotlines.
We encourage you and your constituents to take full advantage of this instantly accessible service. You can be the NJDOT’s eyes and ears and help us keep our roads safe and clean.
James S. Simpson
