SPARTA, NJ – Sparta Township Manager Bill Close announce three paving projects at the township council meeting on Tuesday night. Three township parking lots will be milled and paved, requiring closures beginning this week.
The lower level parking lot at Sparta Town Hall will be closed on Wednesday, September 23 for milling and on September 30 for paving. The public is asked to park in the upper lot or across the street at the Sparta VFW on those days.
The Station Park entrance driveway and parking lots will be closed on September 24 for milling and September 29 for paving. The public is asked to park near the pond or Kids Castle on these dates.
The Sparta Public Library will be closed on September 25 because the parking lot will be closed for milling on that day. It will reopen for regular hours on Saturday. Paving will take place on September 28.
Patrons of Parks and Recreation will park at Ungerman Field parking lot. The community is asked to use the sidewalk on Main Street leading to the Recreation Office at the lower level of the library.
“Please be extremely careful walking on milled lots,” the township announcement said. “Pavement will be uneven and possibly loose material may be present.”
Close said the milling and paving projects are subject to weather conditions.
