TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — This winter's bitter cold and snow have taken a toll on New Jersey's highways.

The state Transportation Department is launching a statewide campaign to fill potholes across the state.

The DOT says it typically fixes 180,000 potholes a year. But it has already repaired more than 125,000 potholes and expects that number to reach approximately 300,000 this year.

The state will deploy 13 state-of-the-art pothole filling machines.

Motorists can report pothole by calling 1-800-POTHOLE.
