Duration and timing of a paving project are difficult to predict. Please pay particular attention to the posted no parking signs for noted changes.

Inclement weather will delay paving time and or dates. Any unfinished street paving will commence on the next posted day.

During PAVING, vehicles “WILL NOT” be permitted to enter or leave the areas being resurfaced. Sections of the street will be posted for “No Parking” on the day prior to paving. Move your car out of the posted area to a nearby street prior to the commencement of work scheduled for 7am. Consider outlying streets for parking.

Area overnight parking restriction enforcement will be suspended by the Police for this project, call them at their non-emergency number 201-796-1400 and advise the location of your parked vehicle. Streets closed with traffic cones will be reopened to traffic at the completion of daily work.  Refuse and recycling services have been notified and will collect prior to paving. Emergency vehicles will have access at all times.  

VEHICLES PARKED IN THE POSTED "NO PARKING" AREA WILL BE TOWED BY THE POLICE AT OWNER’S EXPENSE.

Contact the Fair Lawn Engineering Department at 201-794-5300/5303 if you have special transportation needs (i.e. contracted service) that require vehicle access for coordination. Again, there will be no access during paving.
