MONTVILLE, NJ – With seven township roads freshly paved, the township administration has announced four more roads that will be paved as a result of funds left over from projects last year.
Part of Gathering Road, all of Manchester Way, part of Passaic Valley Road, all of Fletcher, Brook Valley Road within the township, Conklin and Turkey Hill Roads were paved recently. Now the town engineer has decided which additional roads will be paved.
But…what exactly is the process?
Assistant Administrator June Hercek told TAPinto Montville that “the engineering department performs inspections of township roads annually to rate the roads for the road resurfacing program. Pavement defects are visually examined including overall riding quality, asphalt bleeding, pavement bulging, pavement rutting and depressions, raveling, corrugations, shrinkage cracking, alligator cracking, transverse cracking, longitudinal cracking, potholes and utility patches. Also in consideration for the roads selected are the road classification (arterial, collector, local) and coordination with various utility companies for capital work. The rated roads are maintained by the engineering department and milling and resurfacing improvements are completed as funding permits.”
With that in mind, Township Administrator Victor Canning announced at the June 26 township committee meeting that Green Ridge Drive, Craig Court, Candlewick Drive, and Taylortown Road from #69 to Quarry Mountain Lane will be paved.
In July, Changebridge Road, which is a county road, will be paved, according to county spokesperson Larry Ragonese, as previously announced in TAPinto Montville, in the following sections: 0.4 miles between Rt. 202 and Olympia Court, 0.5 miles between Passaic Valley Road and north of Old Changebridge Road, and 0.4 miles between Woodmont Road and Rt. 46.
