Construction activities will take place Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm.  The project is anticipated to be completed by mid-October, however the milling & paving portion will last approximately 2 days per street.    The Township will make notification to the Police Department, Board of Education and residents regarding the schedule.

During construction, there will be instances of road closures, detours, delays, noise from equipment, etc.  As with all construction projects, we urge residents to proceed with caution in areas of construction. Roads will be accessible for residents, delivery vehicles, school buses and emergency vehicles, except during milling and paving at which time only emergency vehicles will be accomodated.   The Township and its contractor will make every effort to keep these interruptions to a minimum and complete this project as quickly as possible.

 

The Township had anticipated all work would be completed during the summer months to avoid conflicts with school traffic, but the process was slowed by the NJ Department of Transportation.  In cooperation with the Board of Education and their staff, every effort will be made to limit the disruption to school drop off and pick up procedures.  

 

 

Additional notifications will be delivered just prior to the road closures.  Your cooperation, patience and courtesy to the residents of the area and school personnel is appreciated!
