BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Bridgewater 2018 Chip Seal Roadway Resurfacing Program is beginning Monday, according to a post from the township.
The roads that are scheduled to be resurfaced this year are Alexis Court, Arron Court, Betts Trail, Bogart Drive, Boyer Drive, Buena Parkway, Catena Court, Danberry Lane, Decker Lane, Elmara Drive, Heinrick Way, Huntley Way, Kiser Lane, Langon Hollow Road, LeVan Court, Lewis Drive, Lynch Court, Murphy Drive, Purcell Road - East, Slack Court, Stapleton Court, Sterling Drive, Sutton Court, Villa Drive, Vista Road, Wendover Place, Wexford Way, Woodward Drive and Young Road.
The chip seal resurfacing is a two-step process, the first being the application of an asphalt emulsion on top of the existing pavement. That is followed by the laying down of a thin layer of quarter-inch crush stone on top of the asphalt layer, which is then pressed into asphalt coating using paving rollers.
According to the post, the first application is done on one day, and then, two to three weeks later, the second step is done.
Travel on the roads being resurfaced will only be affected when the paving contractor is doing the work. There is the potential for delays during the work, which is conducted depending on weather and availability of the contractor.
Anyone with questions about the work being done should contact the township engineering office at 908-725-6300, ext. 5500.
