WESTFIELD/CLARK, NJ — Central Avenue from South Avenue to Barnes & Noble is on the county’s list of roads to be resurfaced this year, the board of freeholders has announced. The work will be conducted at night when possible, the county said, in order to minimize the need for detours during peak travel periods. 

Also slated for repair is Walnut Avenue from Valley Road in Clark to South Avenue in Cranford.

The 2017 Road Resurfacing program will cost approximately $8.2 million, with an approximate 50-50 funding split between the county and the State Transportation Trust Fund.

The 2017 Roads Resurfacing program will begin later this summer after the county completes the 2016 Roads Resurfacing program that was delayed last year after Governor Christie froze the state’s Transportation Trust Fund, according to the board.

In all, the 2017 Road Resurfacing program will repave 21 new miles of county roads in 15 municipalities.

Other roads included in the 2017 program are:

“Union County maintains more 174 miles of roadway that are of import for the transport of our residents but also goods and commerce that impacts New Jersey and the region as a whole,” Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen said in a press release. “We look forward to making progress this summer in ensuring these roads are in good condition for travel.”

Freeholder Christopher Hudak, a member of the Public Works and Facilities Freeholder Committee, added, “Resurfacing also makes travel on our roadways safer and more efficient.  We also make improvements to signage and striping to improve visibility, and to curbing to improve safety and accessibility for people with disabilities.”
