BORDENTOWN CITY, NJ -- Bordentown City will be gearing up in the next few weeks to prepare for a small road project on one of the town's streets.

According to a letter sent to residents of Brooks Avenue by City Commissioner Joe Myers, the Department of Public Works will be making concrete and curb repairs on the street later this Spring. The project will be focused on roadway work only, with no underground work taking place.

Myers told residents that Department of Public Works employees will be on Brooks Avenue over the next few weeks to survey and mark up sections of sidewalks and the road in order to help the City solicit construction bids from contractors. The goal is for the roadway work to begin in May.

Myers noted that the City has been working to rebuild its public infrastructure throughout the past few years, including sidewalks, curbs, utilities and roadways. "Working with its various advisory committees in the City, the intent has been to rebuild our infrastructure based on professional analysis, recommendations and/or evaluations by the City Engineer," he said. 

"As always, the City appreciates the cooperation and patience of our residents as we continue to take strides to improve our roadways, walkways and infrastructure to make our 'little City with a lot of charm' a great place to live," Myers said. 

Brooks Avenue residents with questions can call or text Commissioner Myers at (609) 556-7837.
