Livingston Township – Investing in the Future

The Township announced today that the first phase of the 10-year Capital Improvements Program for the Livingston road system would be kicked off this spring.   At its meeting of March 28th, 2011 the Township Council awarded two contracts for road improvements to begin this process. 

These improvements will be under the management of Jeannette Harduby, the new Assistant Township Engineer, who helped develop plans and specifications for this project.  Ms. Harduby was promoted to this position when the previous Assistant Engineer left Livingston to become the Township Engineer in another community.   She has worked for the Township as Junior Engineer since 2007.

Work will begin simultaneously at the end of April, with two sections, north and south, and will encompass a total of 22 streets including the alley off Concord Drive, Amelia Avenue, Baldwin Terrace, Brentwood Drive, Byron Place, Canterbury Road, Claremont Avenue, Hampton Terrace, Herbert Terrace, Jefferson Court, Lincoln Avenue, Millbrook Court, Morningside Drive, Oak Street, Symington Avenue, Taft Court, Ventnor Place (large area patch), Wilshire Drive, Wilson Terrace, Winans Road, Winchester Road, and Wingate Drive.  The work will mainly consist of milling and re-paving, but may include small areas of reconstruction where needed based on the underground conditions.

The Township’s 10-year Capital Improvements Plan includes approximately 60% of the road system that was rated below average in last year’s survey and inspection of Township roads. Work is currently underway for the design of improvements to next year’s selected streets.

This project is funded by existing capital and will result in long-term savings by maintaining our existing infrastructure in optimal condition. The project will also include new curbing, drainage where required, and pavement striping as needed. In addition to these road improvements, the Township Public Works employees will continue their annual road maintenance program including micro surfacing roads, large area patches, curb repairs and crack sealing in order to preserve and increase the useful life of pavement and road surfaces.

 “Without these improvements, the Township would be faced with increased cost of deteriorating roads, and pavements that require full reconstruction,” reported Richard Calbi, Township Engineer.   “Full reconstruction may cost as much as three times the cost of milling and paving, so by pursuing improvements in a timely manner we can avoid higher costs.”
