CHATHAM, NJ - Council member Jim Collander, chairman of the public safety committee, announced that Chatham Borough will be applying for a Safe Routes to School Grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation to install sidewalks on North Passaic Avenue.

Collander explained the plan to make the application next month to the DOT at the Borough of Council meeting held Monday night.

Sidewalks would be installed on the east side of North Passaic from Yale Street to the Route 24 overpass. According to Collander, the project is estimated to cost $200,000. Of that total, $50,000 would come out of the borough's capital budget and the rest would be applied for through the grant.

Council member Jim Collander talks about a "small victory" achieved on Main Street traffic

Chatham Borough administrators met with the DOT this fall to talk about solutions to the traffic congestion on Main Street. Collander announced one step forward.

"One small victory is that the traffic signals timing on North Passaic Avenue and Fairmount Avenue were off by some 20 seconds," Collander said. "We actually did get the state to sequence the timing so that they are not off by 20 seconds and causing a delay in the traffic pattern. So a small victory."
