FAIR LAWN - The borough has awarded a contract for Roadway Improvements 2016 (held-over) to J.A. Alexander, Inc. Several key artery streets are scheduled for milling (asphalt removal) and resurfacing (paving) as listed below beginning July 14.

Motorists may encounter delays in their commute time during the milling and paving operations. While the actual paving portion of the operation is underway, it will be necessary to entirely close the street to traffic.  Duration and timing of a paving project are difficult to predict. Residents need to pay particular attention to the posted no parking signs for noted changes.

The following is the intended schedule:
