BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater Township has approved a number of new resolutions for roadwork contracts on Gilbride Road and others.

The first is a contract to JTG Construction Inc. for the Gilbride Road 1A Roadway Improvement Project in the amount of $183,156 from the 2008 capital project fund.

The project will consist of improvements to the road and drainage systems, including a full-depth widening along one side of the road, replacement of an existing culvert and more.

"This particular section really blew apart last year with potholes," township administrator James Naples said. "We patched it, but we've been waiting for DEP approval to work in the culvert."

The council also approved a contract with MSP Construction Corporation for the Somerville Road Sanitary Sewer Main Extension and Road Reconstruction Project, for $569,513.50, funded from the 2015 sewer utility capital project fund.

The project will include the installation of a sewer main, manholes and more, plus reconstruction of Somerville Road from the exit of Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School to Vogt Drive.

Naples said they have already resurfaced the road from the middle school to Foothill Road, and this rounds out the construction there.
