UNION COUNTY, NJ – Two segments of Linden Avenue are slated to be repaved this summer as part of the 2017 Roads Resurfacing Program, the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders announced.
The areas are Linden Avenue from Acme Street at the Warinanco Park entrance to Elmora Avenue and Linden Avenue/Lidgerwood Avenue to Edgar Road.
Explained Freeholder Christopher Hudak, who is a member of the Public Works and Facilities Freeholder Committee, “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.”
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 which pays in part for the program.
The program will cost approximately $8.2 million, with an approximate 50-50 funding split between the county and the State Transportation Trust Fund.
A total of 21 new miles of county roads will be repaved this season in 15 municipalities. The work will be conducted at night when possible, in order to minimize the need for detours during peak travel periods.
