OPINION: Potholes On Burrsville Road Brick: What Do You Think?

It would be nice if the many holes would be filled. Some are big and tire-damaging size. This road is a mess. Be careful when driving and eyes opened ..

The pot holes at the end of Patriot are so horrible, it make turning left nearly impossible, especially if there is ice or snow. The ponding issue on the stretch between Rt 88 and Jack Martin Blvd really needs to be addressed too.

The roads are terrible all over Brick! Pot holes everywhere! When the do patch them up PLEASE be level with the road!!!

It's an early pot hole season for sure... especially on Burrsville! I hit one Friday night by the fire hydrant at #1610 and it wrecked a tire. Lake Burrsville has been a problem for way too long...

Look at all the building in that area over the last 10 to 20 years. The medical buildings by Jack Martin, and on Rt 88. All the farm area paved over. The homes off Burrsville and along Burrsville, the newest culdesac, the retirement homes at the corner on Burnt tavern and lanes mill. Now the Prkway expansion. What else have I missed. The water has no where to go. Every sq in is being built on. Out of control for yrs...

The many freeze-thaw cycles we've had this winter have certainly taken their toll on our roadways. But it's useless to fix them mid-season unless they are particularly dangerous. Winter is still in the process of creating them, and newly repaired potholes are more likely to reopen because they need time to "cure".

Burrsvile is a county road.

Remember when the county spent our money to repave this road after the res. was built? First of all ,they stopped repaving in the middle of the road and never finished the whole road and second if the road is falling apart again ,is there some kind of warranty on this bad workmanship?

Had to drive home from Red Bank the other night in 3" of snow and it was still snowing. We may have pot holes in Ocean County, but we are far superior in plowing, sanding and salting our roads. I came from 3" of a white knuckle drive into Ocean County where the roads were mostly just wet. This is the second time it's happened to me. I'd rather deal with pot holes than dangerous snow and ice like in Monmouth County. Kudos to Ocean County road crews. Also it's early in the season for pot hole repairs and when would they have time? They're constantly plowing!

I have lived off Burrsville Rd since 1969. It has been in it's worst condition the last 10-15 YEARS. The flooding issue is worse now than ever. The commercial development in the Hospital Support Zone absolutely worsened the situation. It is obvious that the site plans that were originally approved did not adequately address drainage. Now it is the public's problem. A problem that needs to be handled by the County Board of Freeholders. But do not hold your breath. We can't even get potholes filled!

Sha- If you look at the weather maps the monmouth county area got colder temps and more snow than the Ocean county area. There was a pretty clear line . You are not comparing apples to apples.

Responding to Brick If it is a county why isn't Brick on the county to repair it?
J.JONES February 17, 2014 at 04:44 PM
Then maybe someone in power now should make that call to county what are you waiting for ...I heard there will be donkey tours soon by some of those hole or mini canyons..

Pot Holes in Brick are Horrible. Mr. Ducey is our New Mayor. Start flooding his office with complaints in any area of Brick that you see. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pothole

Burrsville has been in shambles for years. Its condition is well known at both Twp. and County levels. No one needs to "make a call". It IS a county road. It IS the primary route for Brick residents to access the GSP north. Poor site plan approval at the Twp. worsened the flooding. People (O. C. Board of Freeholders) need to address this situation. It endangers the public.

Drive Burrsville and make a right on to Burnt Tavern than try to make right onto jug handle another huge hole you must stay left on turn or lose a tire...

To bad your road wasn"t done properly, mine was. Can"t put down all snow plowers. Go to the meetings and complain if you want something done. I agree with SHA and T. Brown to early to patch roads, hopefully something will be in the spring.
