  • 19 Green Lane And 4-6 Mark Lane Areas - Succasunna-Kenvil
    These Lanes are a ONE LANE road, which is perfect for all the residents and folks don't want this to change. However, it's not safe to walk in specific areas on these two roads as cars have limited visibility to simple overgrowth of brush that has has grown horizontally into the roads and needs trimmed back with a tool that reaches higher than a grass cutter. 5/23/12 we had 2 near misses of getting run over by vehicles while we were on foot. We had to JUMP in the bushes as the car did not see us till the last minute. One on Mark, and one on Green. Mark Lane has shrubs hanging out to hit any of the SUVs traveling through along with Green Lane. Narrow roads and branches hang out into the roads, making it impossible to drive to the side or see around them when they are wet and hanging in the roadways. The sharp bend on Mark Lane and after, drivers do not have any visibility or safe viewing area around the sharp bend or after due to the road visibility being hidden from the over growth. Motorists cannot drive to the side to pass another vehicle due to branches and leaves sticking out into the roadway from about shouler high. Therefore, bottom cutters most likely cannot remove these. They must come in and physically trim this. One is required to drive in the middle of the road to avoid hitting the branches. Branches are very bad due to the rain and fast growth without trimming the shoulder height away. This needs to be cleared out and cut back. Corner is now a BLIND corner due to the growth on the inside of the bend. They used to do a better job on this road. This has been bad since the spring of 2011. The residents reported in May, 2011, June 2011, and July 2011. The trees that hang out on the sharp corner of Mark Lane are vines and branches so you cannnot see around the corner for the oncoming traffic. Folks, please take care of this now. 11/19/2010 reported again. Reported once more 5/11, 6/25/11, 7/11, 9/7/11. 5/23/12 reported AGAIN. Very bad across from #2 Mark Lane area. Overgrown from the side trees growing horizontally out. There is NO ROOM to safely walk on the road now. Be careful, it's very easy to get hit by a faster moving vehicle. Also I almost got hit simply waking on Green Lane near #19 Green Lane. Cars cannot see anything coming out of Mark Lane, and it's overgrown with stuff where they are not aware of anything coming down Green Lane (walkers or bicycles). The vehicles cannot see you as you are walking due to all the stuff hanging out in the road near the green corner house. Be very visible as it's easy to get hit here.
  • 574 Us Hwy 46 Succasunna-Kenvil, NJ 07847 - Succasunna-Kenvil
    Have the RR/State fix the road/rails so its flush and not dropped like it is (esp. on 46W side). There is dip that motorists swerve to avoid hitting directly in lane traffic flow
  • Main St Succasunna, NJ 07876, USA - Succasunna-Kenvil
    Route 10 west and Main st. People are pulling onto Rte 10 from Sussex Turnpike and people pulling off of Rte 10 onto Main st. Accidents all the time. Does someone have to be badly hurt or killed?
  • 1 Mark Ln Succasunna, NJ 07876, USA - Succasunna-Kenvil

    Some put up markers on a quiet dead end street in Succasunna which narrows a one lane road into a very tight space especially on a sharp bend. People walk on this road and almost get run over by people coming around the bend. We used to have ample space, the snow removal used to be able to be pushed back about 6 feet OFF the road into a huge pile back there. Now the snow is IN the road due to the markers making the road far too narrow. Someone is going to seriously get hurt, as there is no place to walk going around the bend where one is not in the way of an on coming vehicle who cannot see around the blind corner. The other negative, is now the snow makes trying to pass with 2 cars IMPOSSIBLE. So many times folks have almost ran right into our car, and if a UPS truck comes and and you are better kiss yourself goodbye.

    Please have someone fix this situation by taking out the markers and allowing two cars to pass on the sharp bend. This was a big mistake. The neighbors have been saying they are going to get up a petition to speed things up.

  • Interstate 80 Ledgewood, NJ 07852, USA - Roxbury
    pot hole in middle lane going east bound, just before exit 28 at a bridge connecting asphalt road and concrete bridge
  • Green Lane And Main St. Succasunna, NJ - Succasunna-Kenvil
    Cars come onto Main St. in Succasunna and speed up while car(s) are sitting facing east on Main to turn left onto Green Lane. They accelerate and gun the engine to close up any gap to the car in front of them and during rush hour will not allow people to turn left. I have elderly parents I must get back to and these drivers are being dangerous and not road curteous. The other issue is coming onto Main and turning right soon onto Green Lane. We have to tap our breaks and put the blinker on in advance as people fly off Rt. 10 cut over the double yellow line and then come right on your bumper tailgating while you turn into Green Lane. They drive in a menacing manner and seem to have road rage as you are trying to get off the road.
  • Mountain Road Ledgewood, Roxbury, Succasunna, NJ - Roxbury

    Mountain Road (*especially from the beginning@Rt206 to Conklin Rd  intersection*), with it's ENORMOUS potholes literally every couple feet, has been inexcusably neglected for years. 

    The road has become SO treacherous that there is now no feasible way to avoid the countless potholes.  We cannot even swerve around them because they cover BOTH sides of Mountain Road. The street continues to drastically deteriorate each year...and yet, NOTHING GETS DONE to rectify it. 

    The extraordinary lack of attention to properly maintain Mountain Rd is absolutely deplorable, not to mention incredibly dangerous to drivers.   In fact, a multitude of residents (including myself) have experienced car damage resultant from the road's poor condition.


  • 12 Mark Ln Succasunna, NJ 07876, USA - Succasunna-Kenvil
    There are vechicles blocking this dedicated turn around. This was dedicated for people to be able to use for turning around and so the garbage trucks would not have to "back out" of the road. Lately a large commercial over 11 feet tall vehicle and cars have been blocking the turn around over night. This has been causing problems for people up and down the road when trucks have to back all the way out the one lane road. This is a true and dangerous issue. It needs more observation and concern. Our neighbor missed a medical delivery by a day due to vehicles parking there.
  • N Hillside Ave And Main St Succasunna-Kenvil, NJ - Succasunna-Kenvil
    this manhole is at least 5 to 6 inches lower than the roadway. I don't understand how police, town employees or the public has tolerated this dangerous situation.
  • Interstate 80 Wharton, NJ 07885, USA - Morris County
    The middle and right lanes are dipping on the temporary lanes on Westbound Route 80. The asphalt is also cracking. This is unsafe for the amount of trucks and cars that use this stretch of Route 80.
  • Dell Ave Archived
    59-69 N Dell Ave Kenvil, NJ 07847, USA - Roxbury
    All of Dell Ave needs to be paved. I have been traveling on this road for over 20 years and it has not once been paved. The trucks have ruined that road.
  • 25-27 Lazarus Dr Ledgewood, NJ 07852, USA - Roxbury
    The Fenimore landfill being used as a garbage dump is producing a VERY BAD STENCH. This needs to be stopped, closed and covered. Call EPA 1-877-926-6337, and local authorities - ROXBURY NEEDS TO STOP THIS!
