Damaged telephone poles Holmdel Rd, near Georgean...holmdel

There are two damaged telephone poles that were struck by vehicles in 2013.  One is split at the bottom nearly 2/3 the way through and extending over the roadway and the other is also split tied with some short poles and cord at the base.  These poles should have been replaced months ago and should be done soon before they cause damage and outages especially with the winter storms upon us.

I fully agree. Seems very dangerous.

The corner of Grandview and Schanck Rd has been in total darkness for over one year. The street light and telephone pole was damaged in Hurricane Sandy and repair work was pretty quickly done by JCP&L. The electrical wires and street lamp look to be in good shape, but the light has never once come on. I notified JCP&L three times, and the township offices twice, and nothing..... If only I had the right light bulb and a tall ladder....

Did you know 1 inch of ice on a telephone pole line weights 500 lbs? That's a real problem for intact poles....definitely more troublesome for poles that have been damaged and split since 2013! Why such a delay fixing them knowing the potential hazard to pedestrians and cars if the poles come down in the street? Good luck Christine - there's no excuse for lights to be out for over 1 year!!! Hopefully, someone in Holmdel will take notice of these ongoing problems.
