LINDENWOLD, N.J. (CBS) – The “pothole killer” is coming to Camden County, New Jersey.

The Camden County Freeholder Board says it is deploying a pothole-filling machine on the streets this week.

The Camden County Department of Public Works fills potholes year round, but this year we are faced with a higher than usual amount of damage on our roadways,” said Freeholder Ian Leonard.“The “pothole killer” truck uses one operator who stays inside the vehicle, filling the hole with a nozzle on the front of the truck. The entire process of filling a typical hole takes about 90 seconds.”

The “pothole killer” is comprised of a truck with a tank on the back and a boon on the front that is capable of being controlled from inside the cab.

Leonard says, “Not only does the pothole killer allow a single employee to fill a pothole in a fraction of the amount of time it would manually take a road crew, it also delivers a patch that lasts longer than those made with the cold-patch material that is available in during the winter months,”

The Freeholder Board is asking residents to report potholes they encounter to the Camden County Public Works Hotline 856-566-2980.
