HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Responding to a question at Tuesday's Hasbrouck Heights Borough Council meeting from a resident of Henry Street, Hasbrouck Heights Borough Administrator Michael Kronyak said the milling and re-paving of Henry Street will begin "next week." He noted that the curb work had been completed, but the engineers, construction company, and the borough agreed that it would be wise to wait until after Thanksgiving.
Councilman Ron Kistner, who is the Borough Administrator for Allendale, noted that it is a general practice not to start projects during Thanksgiving Week, due to the holiday taking at least one day from the work week, as well as the inconvenience to people during a holiday.
The resident while he was addressing the Council, re-addressed what could be done to adjust the traffic patterns on Henry Street, specifically signalling out the heavy trucking that comes off Route 17 and up Henry Street. He noted that the signs prohibiting heavy trucks was too far up on Henry Street to do any good. Further he noted that the trucks take the turn at a fairly good speed, and combined with the size, they usually clip the curbs.
One suggestion would be to close the in-bound Henry street exit, while leaving the entrance to Route 17 south entrance open.
Department of Public Works Superintendent William Spindler confirmed that for those who normally have garbage collection on Friday's, the DPW will be doing trash collection. The DPW dump will be closed on Friday however.
