Where Are the Worst Potholes in Bridgewater?

Which roads in the area bore the brunt of the harsh winter?

By Tom Davis

It's been a rough winter, no one's questioning that. 

From snow days at school to salt shortages throughout the state, towns have had to deal with the inclement weather on a daily basis, Bridgewater included. 

With the heavy snow and ice accumulations over the past couple of months, roads may have suffered the most, as small cracks in the pavement a few weeks ago have become tire-busting craters nearly impossible to avoid.

Each town has its share of notoriously bad potholes drivers try to avoid for fear of a blowout, or even worse.

Which roads have the worst potholes in Bridgewater? Let us know in the comments.

If I spend $50K on my monster SUV to go to King's and get my mani-pedi, I can drive as fast as I like. Even if I let the $200 tires go nearly bald. that said, owners of behemoth SUVs don't have to worry about potholes doing damage, but I would not want to have to panic-stop 5000 pounds of steel and glass; AWD helps you go, does not help you stop.

the flipped cars on 22 at the Vosseller interchange were from this. I will not drive the small-wheeled cars until this is safe. Yes, the trucks cause panic as they dodge these holes.

Church Rd which connects Meadow Rd. and Rt 28. Its just one big pothole at the end nearest Rt 28. Meadow Rd. near the intersection with Church Rd. Talamini Rd along the golf course.

Garrettson is in bad shape until you get near the HS

The situation is ironic here now. The township has been spending less than most towns this size to pave roads, so they can 'keep the tax rate in the lowest quartile of the county'. Well we have the most roads, and cut through workers. So by not keeping up with the roads, the 'fixes' (last years potholes) have gotten worse. So they delayed paving and now will spend more to repair, and then more to pave. This is not fiscally conservative. It is poor planning. There isn't even a plan in the township for road paving. Time to bond more, raise some revenue, develop a plan, and get this town looking like it should.
