The same construction crew working on Cottage Street will move to Ferndale Drive once Cottage Street is completed, noted Viana. 

Viana also said areas of Plainfield Avenue, Washington and Lincoln Streets are having draining and curbing installed. Paving and stripping will follow those installations and is scheduled to happen this week. 

On the Berkeley Heights Train Station front, the township is waiting for a “green light” from New Jersey Transit to begin remediation work on the commuter lot. The township engineer has requested additional lighting and the installation of another entrance to the train platform. 

According to Viana, the requests are causing a slight delay, but the contractor assigned to the parking lot at the train station is “ready to go.”

And finally, in the never-ending fight against road deterioration, Berkeley Heights Town Council passed a resolution awarding a contract to Neglia Engineering for improvements to Fairfax Drive, Tudor Lane and Windsor Way in an amount not to exceed $45,850. The resolution was passed during Monday’s meeting.
